INDUSTRIAL UNREST. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 February 1914
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1914. INDUSTRIAL UNREST, CaN nothing be done to stop the indue. trial unarest that is doing so much harm in Australia just now ? The ordinary citizen opening any newspaper in the Commonwealth may well imagine that an epidemic of strikes has swept over the ranks of those who work for wages. Hardly an issue of any journal appears without it being filled with long accounts of strikes in puogress, threat. ened strikes and-very oooasionally a strike that has been settled. For the first time accurate statsletics were kept last year by the Commonwealth Statieician, These show that during 1913 there were throughout Australia no fewer than 208 disputes which led to a cossation of work, Over 50,000 work people were involved in these, and the number of days' work loot exoeeded 600,000, It is estimated that the lose in wages was rather over £288.000, being £5/14/7 per individual involved, This seems a terrible amount of lose and suffering, and it may well be asked whethe...
