"WORKER" MAIL BAG. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 3 October 1891

'WORKER' MAIL BAG. Grovujnd has at least found an uncon scious ally in the Brisbane Telegraph. In -the^Papern for thtrTimes,' NorVTH., pufr lished by that organ, may be found perhaps the strongest condemnation, of the competi upon the labour of a man as a gambling counter in-a-game^ of industrial baccarat. The writer of those Tel*yraph papers evi dently regards the work of a human being as a thing he should be able to buy for a frac tion of his own time and sell to half-a-dozen -^ther-people for the result of their combined labour The hundreds per cent he makes out of the bargain is the only reward he asks for the use of his. brains— This ^creature is a specimen of a class ^olTg~TPCrtgni8adIfey ^he workers, but few have ewr painted them selves so naturally. A well-known illustration employed by Gronlund - to illustrate 'the ; manner' in which the workers are fleeced is of the employers saying : 'If you will work five hoursji day -fftr^i«-pra.*wi«j--nnly; w*a will mvthla^yffirr-Tn^ w...
