Excerpt from Labor Shortage in Track Maintenance: The Remedy
As we write, the press fairly teems with columns of discussion of the problems confronting the railway systems of the country - congestion of traffic; condition of rolling stock; track maintenance and many others too numerous to mention. Throughout it all, however, is one dominant note - Labor Shortage.
Ere these words are done into type, many more columns will have been written, much advice will have been offered, and many of these problems will have approached a satisfactory solution.
question of shortage of labor, that is, skilled labor, is one that has always confronted every industry, becoming less and less acute as mechanical devices, of one sort and another, have made it possible to utilize more and more the so-termed "green" labor.
