Viennese daily newspaper, founded by Victor Adler in 1899. Its full name was Arbeiter-Zeitung: Zentralorgan der Deutschen Sozialdemokratie in Oesterreich (Workers' Daily Newspaper: Central Organ of German Social Democracy in Austria). The paper was banned in 1934, and recommenced publication in August 1945, ceasing publication finally in 1991.

Schenker evidently read it, at least occasionally, and cited it in his diary. Two items from it from 1903 are clipped in his scrapbook (OC 2/pp. 4, 8).
