OVERWORKED MILKMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 11 July 1890
OVERWORKED MILKMEN. (To the Editor.) Sir,-—ln answer to &quot;Dairyman,&quot; I may say a Union was started some months ago among some of the milkmen in Auckland, but I think it must have died a natural death, for we never hear anything about it now. But, sir, I think before we shall be able to do any good the farmer will have to have a say in the matter, for I have long come to tho conclusion thab the dairy farmers in the Auckland districts are a pack of fools, for in tho first place thn price they are Retting for their milk is nob sufficient to pay expenses, leaving wages out of the question. I know of cases that are supplying some of the dairies, in which the graziors' cows are mortgaged, and the men who milk them cannob geb their wages.

On making inquiries, I was told he had been dismissed at a moment's nobioe, no reason being given ; bub ib is rumoured that his only offence was that of joining the Knights of Labour. If this be sufficient to deprive a man of his situation after five years faithful service, ib is time some change took place. The an inspector is to control conductorflfetc, and see bhat they act honestly bo bhe Company. The hours are from 7 a.m. till 11.30 p.m. for four days, and from 7 a.m. till 8 p.m. far the other two? he has also to be on duty every third Sunday, and for this he receives the enormous sum of £2 per week. Under these circumstances, it can hardly be wondered at, that a man should join the Knights or any other organisation, to assist in getting more Christianlike hours. I see by lasb nighb's issue that the inspector referred ...

WHERE AND WHAT IS THE MARITIME COUNCIL? (To the Editor.) Sir,—l have made a most important discovery, which I feel ib my duty to at ouee give the public the benefit of.. Many people are wondering what this mysterious power, the Maritime Council, consists of; a great friend of mine is particularly anxious on the subject, and he book greab pains to solve the mystery.
