wages and working conditions through either individual or collective

membership or non-membership in a labor organization. We believe work
opportunities should be made available to all legal residents and we
support programs toward this end.

We believe it is incumbent upon all branches of government to be
responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars and we believe that government
should award contracts only to the lowest responsible bidder. We oppose
unjust pressure to violate these principles.
We believe monopolies or any kind of price or wage fixing, in either the
public or private sector, are detrimental to our system of free
We believe the destiny of all Americans can be best served by
cooperation, reconciliation and following the tenants of free enterprise
and a democratic government. We believe business leaders can best
preserve these tenets by becoming active in politics and civic affairs.
