Suggestion: Make Suggestions (U.S. Government Poster from 1945)

I’m not sure if this poster was associated with the Training Within Industry program or not, but it’s a World War II era government propaganda poster. Is one suggestion (or implemented idea) really too much to ask? Why do most organizations get much less than that? If the government had a culture where this was possible, would we need efforts like Strong America Now?
