Brief work of labor fiction written by a Brooklyn insurance agent, following the career of one Agent Truboy, an entry-level agent in a large, anonymous insurance company.

Early on, Agent Truboy discovers the insurance racket is rigged against the agent, and becomes disillusioned until he joins a newly formed union and begins to affect change. Not found in OCLC, though we do note 2 copies held at the Kheel Center for Labor-Management Documentation, Cornell University.

Description:
[New York]: Moving Picture Operators Union Local 306 / A.F.L., n.d., ca. 1932. Original steel bottle opener/milk cap pick (6.5cm. in length). Minor rustiness, else Near Fine. Presumably issued during the 1932 union wars between the New York-based Moving Picture Operators Union Local 306 and the Empire State Motion Picture Union. The dispute came to a head on a Monday evening in early September, 1932, when several bottles of phosphorus were thrown into a movie-going crowd at two theaters in Flatbush, Brooklyn, injuring six. Leaders of the local were interviewed by the District Attorney but claimed innocence, arguing that "some persons inimical to Local No. 306 were responsible for the throwing of the phosphorus in the hope of having the blame placed on Local No. 306" ("Trade Union" (Brooklyn), September 8, 1932). Tools like this—which combined a bottle opener with a sharp pick for prying caps off milk bottles—were often used for advertising a variety of businesses.
