    can see some of the beginnings of this argument here so it had to be in the period between this battle and 1946 ... the one person who may be able to answer this question is JayRaye who has excellent knowledge on the history of trade unions in the US.

    Good to see you here LeGauchiste!

      But here's where I would start research: I would look into the fight which finally organized much of little steel. I believe it was during the war (from memory). My guess would be that Little Steel modified their propaganda campaign to fit whichever fight they were in. They hired publicity men with advertising experience to help them.

      I think it's important to follow their propaganda, then and now. Perhaps we could get better at countering it. We better learn one of these days before our labor movement is done for.

        [The Mohawk Valley Formula] was given  to a waiting world by young Mr. James H. Rand, Jr., but is reported to be the invention of a famous public relations man specializing in industrial matters.
        She didn't name the man or the firm.
