Download PDF for this date

Anti-Semitism and discrimination in employment were condemned today by the New York State Federation of Labor in resolutions passed at the closing session of its seventy-eighth convention.

The resolutions were adopted after an address by Thomas J. Lyons, president of the Federation, in which he assailed “those who preach religious or racial discrimination.”
