VICTORIAN BUILDERS' LABORERS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 13 July 1914

VICTORIAN BUILDERS' LABORERS. The danger of a strike of builders' .laborers on Victorian railway works was averted by a decision of the. Railway Commissioners to meet the demands of the1 unionists in regard to extra -pay.- ?? The De partmental view in regard to the assertion that in refusing to pay the award of the Arbitration Court — 1.0/4 per day— to the employees mentioned, they, were opposing the dictum of Mr. Justice Higgins that this was a living wage, is that Mr. Justice Higgins recognised when making his award .that ? such men employed outside the department hau to suffer a considerable amount of broken time. which is not prevalent m the railway service. Builders' laborers in the railway service, it is contended, have practically constant employment, and thus are, even under the prevailing rates of pay. earning much more on an average than builders' laborers on the higher rate outside the service. Owing to the proposed increases of pay, it is stated, the expenditure on the r...

PIECE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 13 July 1914

PIECE WORK. There can be no doubt that a screw must be very loose somewhere in our industrial system when a good man is prevented from working' at his best. That such a state of affairs does exist, was clearly demonstrated in the case of some bricklayers who, in two' and a half days laid bricks at the rate of .'5000 a day. Instead of getting' as much credit as a sprint runner would be entitled to, who covered 100 yards in nine seconds, these men were blamed by their fellows for having, even for once, broken the dead level performances of an average day's work, and threatened with expulsion from the union if such a thing occurred again! This jealousy of modern unionism against any M-rt of expertness is an ominous sign of decadent times. Why is it that no bricklayer is allowed by his union to lay bricks at so much per 1000? The coal miner works at a hewing rate per ton, which is calculated according to the quality of the mine in which he hibors. lie can earn, at his best, u good week'...

N.S.W. BORROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 13 July 1914

N.S.W. BORROWING. Premier I Lolman's pre-election plea for ''another chance' was based on his promise to restore sane financing;. His apparent sincerity, coupled with his supreme qualities of 'leadership, 'greatly influ enced the electors. They felt that, it was 'in' Holman to do the thing: and since he seemed so truly repentant, they decided to grant him the opportunity eloquently sought. But it is a different Holman now. He has plainly gone over to the ''borrow, boom and bust' party. He harps on 'the future1' and affirms that 'the development of Australia shall' not be stinted or held back 'by means of parsimonious arrange ments.' The loan estimates for l!)K3-:l-I- amounted to seven and a half million pounds. The interest charges on that sum would be, at least, .-E.'IOO.OOO. Dr. Arthur. M.L.A.. in a recent speech, declared that not more than one-third, or, at most, one-half of this will be recovered annually, and there will, therefore, be a yearly loss of from £150.000 to £?^00,00...

A FOUNDATION QUERY. An Armidale (N.S.W.) land agent received a peculiar request during the week from a person signing himself 'A. B.C., Woollahra, Sydney.' The writer sought information as to whether any 'solid' land was available — not the sort that would cave in easily. lie added that he could sec from a certain Scriptural text that people 'living in a vast valley like Cumberland had very little chance of gaining heaven, as the Bible advised, 'Those who would be saved must go above.'' Therefore, he was anxious to get on the heights of New England. He further added that he particularly wanted to know if the traffic in. .the principal streets of Armidale made a hollow, rumbling sound.
