Broadsheet for a Clerks' Association (1890)

In Wilhelmine Germany, the organization of labor included employees as well as industrial workers. This broadsheet calls for a meeting of the clerks’ association in Berlin. Among other demands, it calls for the government to put a legal limit on working hours and to introduce a day of rest on Sunday. These demands were eventually successful, although change was gradual and only realized during the Weimar era.
