ThlH IH the flrHt mooting utter tho summer vacation period ami much business IB to be considered. VOTERS: Don't befooled No matter what they call it... . 22 IS A TAX ON YOU! On the November 3rd Ballot there will appear as Proposition 22, an innocent looking measure called tbe "Retail Store License." But don't be misled. It's a 1936 model hidden tax...a new scheme to stifle competition and raise prices. This simple story of two stores explains the plot. •l-l IINCII ITOII CHAIN iroir TOIE MIOtfllMAN (7) Here arc 2 California retail stores. On the outside they look much alike. Each does n good business. But one is a single store, the other has brothers and sisters and is called a chain store. _ The middleman realizes that people trade at a chain store chiefly because it sells for 10 percent less. Since he can't compete with the chain store method, the middleman wants to put chain stores out of business or force them to raise their prices. no) Of course the public will pay (or these profits through an increase in prices on the necessities of life. Out it's just a question of whether the middleman or the public takes the rap. tlNOtl ITOHI CHAIN IIOII MANUrACIUIII MIDDIIMAN IINOtl 8TOM (2) The SINGLE store charges ten per cent higher prices, because it gives credit and delivery service and because it buys through a middleman. ($} Through the California Legislature he lobbies a bill called the "Retail Store License." This unfair bill would levy a special tax ot $1.00 a year on single stores and $500.00 a year on chain stores. IINOll ITOU (n) Who would suspect that an innocent thing like a Retail Store License was another scheme to tax the public and fatten the middleman's pocketbook? Voters might think it was some trifle like a dog license or a fishing license! 5IOU MANWACTUMI CHAIN tTOII (J) The CHAIN store charge* ten per cent lower prices because it eliminates all frills, unnecessary services and in-between expenses and buys directly from producer or manufacturer. (?) That, he figures, may put the chain store out of business so its customers will be forced to pay the higher prices at the single store. If not, the tax can be raised later to $1,500 or $2,500 per store. n-'l MIDDLIMAN imoit STOII CHAIN ITOIt CHAIN ITOII (s) At least the chain store will be forced immediately to raise its prices and thus lose business. But wait. Some of the public ld suspect. Shortly after this hidden-tax bill passed the Legislature, 136,000 indignant California voters signed a petition that put it on the ballot at the next general election. Now the voters can say a word for themselves. We think that word will be "NO." \4j You may remember, at one time the middleman sold goods to all retailcrs.That was when the high cost of living was our biggest headache. But today the chain store eliminates the middleman nnd the middleman's profits. So the middleman is opposed to chain stores (wouldn't you be—if you were a middleman?) JINOll ITQIf CHAIN ITOII sioie CHAIN STOKC 9 In cither cnse competition will be less. So the single store can raise its prices and still get more business. This means fatter profits for the middleman who sells to the single store. So what it all adds up to is this: the innocent sounding Retail Store License is a scheme to subsidize the single store and wholesaler by taxing the public. 22 is a tax on you, Vote NO on Proposition 22. 22 IS A TAX ON YOU!
