Added DiffLines:

** Less an attack on organized labor and more an attack on the [[ItsAllAboutMe self-absorbed]] [[UpperClassTwit young rich twit]] who sees himself as 'saving labor' while not so secretly despising the working class. As the story itself says:
-->''"He thought of the Working Class as a cross between the Kallikaks and the Man With a Hoe... He knew that Labor needed him. He was wrong. What he needed was labor, about eight hours of it a day."''

** The Hogben family also counts.counts.
* ValuesDissonance: "A Gnome There Was" opens with a bilious attack against the labor movement. (The overall mentality of Kuttner characters is total self-interest, even if the character outwardly seems to be engaged in altruistic pursuits.)
** Gallegher's alcoholism is considered comedic both by other characters and in the narration, even though it makes him miserable.
