Alluding to various strikes in 1892, particularly at Andrew Carnegie’s steel mill in Homestead, Pennsylvania, this cartoon asserts that American labor will not strike against the Republican policy of trade protectionism, which allegedly kept wages high. Instead, workers reject the pleas of Democratic tariff reformers (left-right): William C. Whitney, Grover Cleveland’s campaign manager; Henry Watterson, editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal; and, Senator Roger Mills of Texas.
