ABSTRACT
The article discusses the history behind the development of war labor policies in the U.S. as well as their outcome in peace. The author states that out of the unprecedented labor conflict in the country, unskilled labor had emerged the phenomenon of state laws which prohibited the employment of people in one state to work in another. The author also mentions that labor contracts provided by the federal government were never efficiently administered as to make possible any real steadying of the labor situation.
