Excerpt from State of Labor in Europe, 1878 To save repetition as much as possible, I may say that a perusal of the consular reports herewith submitted forces the painful impression upon the mind that low wages, enforced idleness, dear and scanty food, make the laborer's life, in a majority of the countries of Europe, a continual struggle with absolute want. No American laborer or capitalist can read these reports without a feeling of the utmost commiseration for the toiling millions of Europe, and of heartfelt pride in, and appreciation of the blessings which Heaven, through a free government, has vouchsafed to the people of the United States. Belgium. Taking areas and populations into consideration, there is, perhaps, no other country in Europe whose labor statistics present so condensed a field for investigation, or whose workingmen have so clearly accepted their situation - putting their patient industry, and even continuity, against the almost limitless capital and capacity, but less reliable labor, of their more powerful neighbors - as those of Belgium. Contentment among her working people, a fixed principle of living within their means, and a feeling of reciprocity between the employer and the employe, have made Belgium an important power in the commercial and manufacturing world. Perhaps necessity compels this mutual understanding, for it is only thereby that Belgian manufacturers are enabled to compete with English, French, and German manufacturers in foreign markets, and give employment to their workingmen. A few years of misunderstandings between capitalists and laborers, such as periodically convulse England, would paralyze Belgium and ruin both employers and employes. Therefore, the great wisdom displayed by the Belgian workingmen in accepting their peculiar situation is worthy of the highest commendation; whether this has been learned of necessity or whether it has been reached through a more patriotic channel, is of minor consequence. Such is the reciprocity of feeling between capitalist and laborer, that manufactories or workshops are scarcely ever closed; the employers, in the dullest of times, preferring to run them even at a loss, rather than throw their employes out of work; and the latter, under such circumstances, cheerfully complying with a reduction in hours and wages, cutting down their already bare necessaries of life to tide over the dark hour, confident that when better times return their full time and wages will be again restored. It must not be understood from this pleasing picture that the working people of Belgium are better off than their neighbors. On the contrary, their lives are continual struggles for meager subsistence, and nothing but that spirit of patience, kindness, and fortitude, which enables them to practice the severest economy, makes it possible for them to subsist themselves and supply the necessaries of life to their families. At the very best, the lot of the workingmen of Belgium is hard and unremitting toil, an unceasing battle with most adverse circumstances, but it would be immeasurably worse were they to resort to strikes and violence to better their condition; indeed, were it not for the reciprocal feeling which unites laborer and capitalist, Belgium would be scarcely known as a commercial or manufacturing country.
