Senate Committee on Labor Speech
"It is indeed a priviledge to address this body, so many of whose members have distinguished themselves over the years by their genuine concern for the welfare of farm workers. For this we are grateful. . We welcome the decision of this subcommittee to hold hearings on S 8 in order to explore still further the question of whether and in what way farm workers should be covered by the National Labor Relations Act, as amended."
