I found this Young Republicans ad floating around the internet. This ad was circulated for Labor Day in 1956 and clearly supports and encourages labor unions.
Talk about a different Republican Party these days….
FYI… I have not been able to find an archived copy in the DC Archive Library, but that does not mean it isn’t there, or in another archive. These archives can be somewhat difficult to find something specific, especially without have any further details. I am going to continue to search for it as I am very confident this is an actual image of the 1956 copy. If anyone finds an archived copy, please let me know. This is what the Republican Party was like back then.
And now, in Michigan recently, the GOP is attempting to wipe out collective bargaining.
