    The Arbeitsdank (roughly "Labor Thanks") was set up by the RAD's forerunner, the FAD/NSAD, in November 1933 as a welfare body acting as a form of health insurance for all Labor Service members who had sustained injuries or illness related to their work.

    It also assisted poorer Labor Service members with acquiring further education or job skills in order to gain employment after leaving the service.

    All members of the FAD/NSAD and the later RAD were recquired to belong and financially contribute to this organization.

    Your badge is probably simply the standard membership badge for this organization, although there was also a badge of honor (Ehrenabzeichen) of the same basic design, but with a base of silver-gilt and a generally more lustrous appearance. (The award criteria for this version are not known.)
