This is from the bound collection that includes sermons from May 24, 1908 to August 9, 1908.

Follows up on the previous Sunday's sermon ("The Bearing of Burdens, July 19, 1908) specifically the need for a living wage for all workmen, a wage that would allow women to be homemakers. Davis also suggests that part of the problem is open-door immigration, which drives down wages. He also states that the pursuit of wealth, at the expense of human personality, is another part of the problem, but remains optimistic that once recognized, the problem will be fixed.
