A puzzling phenomenon

Keppler, Udo J., 1872-1956
Puck, holding a lithographic pen, stands next to a laborer who is reading a notice posted on a wall that states, "'Reduction in Wages due to the Great Law of Supply and Demand.' Explanation by Republican Party, under Republican Administration." Caption: Puck--Doesn't it ever seem strange to you, my friend, that the eternal and unvarying law of supply and demand should work only for the Republican Party?
Men--Employment, Working class, Wages, Labor supply, Cost and standard of living, Supply and demand, Republican Party (U.S. : 1854- )
