Trade union laborers, some in chains labeled "High Tariff" and "Tariff," and one standing on a block labeled "Trade Unions," are being auctioned by a man labeled "Protectionist Statesman" to capitalists and manufacturers, including Cyrus W. Field and William H. Vanderbilt. In the background is a row of factories. A sign states "Quotations. Average wage for skilled workman $7 a Week or $359 a Year." Caption: "Going - going - lower - lower!"
