A diminutive man labeled “American Laborer”, in the left foreground, looks at the viewer and gestures with his thumb back at the wooden figure. On the right, from a ship at dock, a stream of “Foreign Labor” disembarks, passing through a gate labeled “Starvation Wages”, and heading for factories in the background.
