Text on poster:
In the Mid-Forties, soldiers returned home from Europe and the Pacific and exchanged uniforms for work clothes. But when they tried to regain the earning power they had lost during the "no strike", profit-rich war years, they were turned back at the factory gate. At the same time, women who had worked side by side with men in heavy industry during the war years launched their bid for equal wages. "Welcome Home, Boys" pays tribute to the returning soldier, and to the struggle of women workers.
