Democratic Party Platform of 1912

Contents:

Civil Service Law

The law pertaining to the civil service should be honestly and rigidly enforced, to the end that merit and ability shall be the standard of appointment and promotion, rather than service rendered to a political party; and we favor a reorganization of the evil service, with adequate compensation commensurate with the class of work performed for all officers and employés; and also favor the extension to all classes of civil service employés of the benefits of the provisions of the employers’ liability law. We also recognize the right of direct petition to Congress by employes for the redress of grievances.
