"This pamphlet constitutes the results of an investigation of the laundry industry. Committees of League members interviewed employees in their homes and employers in their places of business and compiled lengthy questionnaires on working conditions, wage standards and attitudes. The pamphlet includes a brief history of the industry, very intimate and informative sections culled from the personal interviews, a survey of labor conditions, and finally, a statement of recommendation."
