Another thought? When I was very small, My Dad had a Maytag Badge(with his employee number on it) and security would not let anyone through the gate that did not have a company badge. Things may not have changed that much. I can't get in the building at work without my employee ID with a Bar Code on it. There is a reader at every door.

At first , I thought that they were employee badges but I see that they are laying flat which means there is no pin in which to attach to the shirt.
I am quit positive that these are plant equipment asset tags. Each would be attached to a press , lathe etc. They are for yearly inventory purposes and must be visually displayed so that (government auditors) could identify. They must be removed , after the equipment was removed or sold.
I worked at the Massey Verity plant , in Brantford, and recall these similar tags. Much of the equipment , particularly presses , drop hammers etc, were supplied by the government to companies , in order to produce materials for the war. After the war , equipment , as such, was sold to the company for the sum of $1.00 . Hope this helps

That is a good point! In our High School machine shop, Many of the machine tools had been donated by Maytag Company after they cycled out of use for production(They had Brass Tags like that on them). Maytag was a contract builder during WWII and there are a couple aircraft engines built by Maytag during WWII in the county museum.
