Shaky, dull in contrast and imagery A 'Red Hot' freight car, loaded by non-union workers, threatens to tie up the entire section when union warehousemen refuse to unload it and are discharged. Snappy girl Battalions' help picket warehouses. Under Red Hot the word Scab One is printed in chalk. This is taken very seriously by the workers not to handle anything that was done by a non-union worker. A picket sign reads, Low Wages - Long Hours - The Open Shot. Mean more on relief. Half as many on the job.
