One of the central aims of the government’s poster campaign was to transform the US economy to all-out war production. The period before the war had been marked by unprecedented labor unrest as over 5.6 million workers participated in more than 10,000 strikes between 1933 and 1938. Many of the posters issued during World War II were directed at overcoming these deep-seated labor tensions, linking production to patriotism, and convincing workers that they were no longer just employees of private corporations, but rather, soldiers on the industrial front line.
