Scope and Content

Second page of letter only. Complains about rates of payment for women workers. They have been asked to change from making soldiers' hair brushes to soldiers' button brushes at a rate of 5/6d. a gross; they need at least 7/6d. a gross and even then at this rate would probably earn less than before. One very experienced worker found she could earn only 1/6d. in twelve hours at the present rate. Rates far too low for experienced workers. Undated.
