Description:John Merrick (Charles Coburn) is the owner of Neely's Department Store. When the employees protest for better working conditions, he decides to go undercover, working in the shoe department, to root out the agitators. There, he meets Mary Jones (Jean Arthur), a very kind young woman who is the girlfriend of the chief organizer, Joe O'Brien (Robert Cummings). As Merrick gets to know them, he becomes sympathetic. In the end, he fully supports the employees' position and, for good measure, marries Elizabeth, one of his employees.
