Organize and Take the Big Bag by Jon Lynch, Industrial Pioneer, June 1925.

As in the cartoon "The Blind Man's Share," we see in this cartoon the nature of the capitalist exploitation of the working class under the system of wage slavery. The cartoon shows a capitalist handing a worker his weekly wages which are but a tiny portion of the total wealth created by his labor power. The message is quite clear: the working class must organize and claim the full product of its toil.
