Sweated Postal Employees. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 12 November 1910
Sweated Postal Employees. The constant hammering of The Interna tional Socialist has resulted in a discussion in the House of Representatives on the sub juct of sweating in the G.P.O., and a pro mise from the Government that in future no employee of 21 years of age shall receive less than £ 1 10 per year. Labor and Liberal members used the facts as presented by this paper, although they don't appear to have acknowledged the source of their inspiration. This little change does not abolish sweat ing in the G. P.O., though — and don't you forget it ! Public Service Commissioner McLachlan isn't sweated. His salary is £1500 per year— £30 per week, £6 per day, £l per hour, EIGHT SHILLINGS KOIl EVE11Y TWENTY minutes — and he says: 'The payment of Ss per day [to the working-class employees of the ?Commonwealth] would in many cases be excessive and out of proportion to the services rendered.' Hereunder is a list of post-offices (whose chief director is Labor-member Thomas), with the wages PE...

The Industrial Tangle in S.A. — * — HV ICONOCLAST. Tub many object lessons which the U.L.U. has given recently in working-class solidar ity have apparently taken effect in the ranks of sectional unionism. ? On Monday last the blacksmiths and boilermakers' assistants inAdelaide andGaw ler struck for a minimum wage of Ss per day. Before evening three firms in Adelaide con ceded the strikers' -demands, but at Gawler the men are still out, and the trouble is spreading. The officialdom of the Union Mortuary and of sectionalism'' arc .showing how true their unionism really is not. Individually they are wearing broad smiles and quietly crowing because the members of the U.L.U. did not get all they asked for during the Rundle-street trouble; but they are too short-sighted to sec that trie rank and file are becoming sick and tired of such a useless body, and that they themselves, although against Industrial Unionism, are helping by their stupid methods to show the worker that it is the way t...

Commission on Arbitration and Dis i armament, as follows : — ' The _ Congress declares that the arma - ments of the nations have alarmingly in creased during recent years in suite of thn peace congresses and the protestations of peaceful intention on the part of Govern ments. Particularly does this apply to the general movements of the Governments to increase the naval armament, the latest phase of which is the construction of Dreadnoughts.' This policy leads not only to an insane waste of national re sources for unproductive purposes, and therefore to the curtailment of means for the realisation of necessary social reforms in the- interests of the working class, but it also threatens all nations with financial ruin and exhaustion through the insupport able burdens of indirect taxation.

Russia. Hie Social- Democratic organ of Lettland, Mhnu (The Struggle), in publishing it Hundredth number, gives a summary of in teresting events in . the Baltic Provinces. -.lav Zihna, although' printed in secret, has siMiictimes reached a ciiculation of 10,000 copies, which quite covered the total eost« ot. the secret printing press (about 1,200 roubles a month). As it has lately been impossible to, print the paper in Russia, it is now being published in Brussels. The secret printing of the. Zihna has led to ac tHi'iis against thirty-four comrades, both men and women, who, collectively, spent fifty- three years in prison before trial. Fourteen were then sentenced to banish ment to Siberia, eight to fifteen years' penal servitude. One of them, Emma Aunin, died of consumption in prison, while another, Hilda Hitter, was shot by a sentry. These things are characteristic of the path of ?suffering along which the Xihna has travelled.
