A Pauperising Institution [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901

A Pauperising Institution From time to time there appears :n the daily press statements to the effect that when a number of laboiers are required to go into the country, the unemployed registered at the Labor Bureau refuse to go. For the purpose of minimising the seriousness of the unemployed pro blem created by a capitlistic condi tions, this statement is made in such a way as to brand as loafers all those who refuse to go. The statements in last week's issue of The Peopi.* as to tV e treat ment of men at Cobar give sufficient reasons why the ' Bureau ' jobs are not rnshed by the workers. Men are informed that they can work at a certain place, bnt they can get no information as to how long it will last, or how they are to live until they draw a pay. In many cases they are not informed of the nature of the work they are being sent to. On arrival at their destination, men who hoped for steady road or rail way work,, at whioh they are well worth 7b per day, are sent to scrub outtingan...

The Railway Commissioners. AND THE MINIMUM WAGE. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901

The Railway eommis^ sioners. AND THE MINIMUM WAGE. Mb. O' ' uIjLivait says he has es tablished 'seven shillings a day as the minimum wage, ' which is as fixed as the law of gravitation. , If so, why are the Commissioners permitted to pay less to workers on the railways. On the deviation works at Cardiff some of the men complain that only a section of v'vo« frw*niuK VUOIO are I'WUlVlKlg the seven shillings, the others only being paid six shillings, and it is said that if men complain they are promptly sacked. Many have left the job disgusted Tot Pso plk wants to know if this is true— and jndging by the experience of the men recently employed at the Newcastle boat-harbor work1?, it most probably is true — in which case steps shonld at once be taken to oohpbIi the Commissioners to pay the rnling rate of wages.

A Strike of a Day. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901

A Strike of a Day. WHEN the Masters and En gineers of Harbors and Rivers j Steamers mad$ their demand for a redaction of their working hoars from 84 to 60 a week the 'owners' were inclined to regard the matter as a very small con cern. It doesn't appear to have j du uvn. «uo puut-iu't&iug uiuwu that runs the Sydney Ferries, Ltd., that its a monstrous thing to compel men to work 12 hours a day seven days a week. Neither did it seem to strike them in their mad rush for the profits that come from the penny fares that it'B rather risky for the thousands of lives under their charge if the masters and engineers of the ferries in Sydney's crowded har bor are compelled to work such hoars. None of these considera tions weighed with Sydney Ferries, Ltd., on whose directorate Dr. Robertson, the Newcastle coal-owner, bobs up serenely. So it caiae to a strike, and the f er- rieB ceased to' run. And the Duke Show was almost upon us. The high-toned people -who wanted to be part of the show...

Good frign. Delegates have been interviewing various bosses during the week, and as a result are having their eyes opened somewhat.

Mangling the Workers to Death. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901

Mangling the Workers to Death. Oh Friday of last week, six Broken Hill miners were mangled - to death by a fall of earth while fol lowing their employment. A party of eight was working, when what is described as a 'slippery bead' caused a collapse, and Bix of the nnmb r were buried beneath Mm [ fall, the two others narrowly escap ing. For just one day, the event was made to do duty with big head lines in the capitalistic press ; and then — since the mangled victims were only ordinary profit-creating workers — the tragedy was entirely forgotten by most people, and pablio affAntiATi wAfl an malltr 4a the Duke Show, occurrences of this kind are so common tbat even the » age-workers themselves cease to experience anything more than a passing thrill of horror when each succeeding tragedy is recorded ; and the profit-mongering crew in whose interests the victims work and for whose comfort profits are produced give but little thought to each matters. Working-men must expect to get killed s...

SOCIALIST MINERS. MEETINGS IN WA[?]LSEND DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901

SOCIALIST MINERS. MEETINGS IN WA .U3END DI8TBICT. , Newcastle and .district have been bomba ded for quite a number of years with Socialist Bhot ; but it has never been found possible to organ ise any large branches throughout the locality. Nevertheless, the whole, district is ne-meated with Si oialist thought. Gar candidates polled a good vote there in the Fed j eral contest, especially at West Wallsend. Since then ' Westy ' has formed a branch of the League, whioh promises to develope into something large and vigorous. For some time past the comrades there have been agitating for a speaker to pay them a visit, so last Saturday Genaral Secretary Moroney pro ceeded to the coal district. He left S/dney by train, with the intention ot alighting at Cockle Creek, where the Westy boys were to meet him. But — the train didn't stop at Cockle Creek, and . he was carried on to Newcastle. The coal city was packed with people who had come from near and far to behold the blessed Jake. Moroney ha...

A SOCIALIST LETTER [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901

A SOCIALIST LETTER Following is a copy of a letter forwarded by the corresponding secretary of the Int- ruational So cialist Club to Victor Serwig, secre retary of the Permanent Interna tional Committee, rae Joseph Steevens, Brnssels : t)ear Comrade, — The elections to the Federal Parliament have taken place (29th March) and, as wan an ticipated, in this State (New South Wales) which' had to elect six members to the Senate, resulted in the return of pnrely boargeoiae representatives, five being free traders and one. protectionist. F -r the House of Representatives, or lower chamber, to which 26 mem bers had to be elected from this State, four Freetrade Labor mem- j bers and two Protectionist Labor members were elected, the remain ing 20 being purely representative of the bonrgeoise divided only by professed differences in fiscal policy. The labor party here allows itself to split on the fiscal question, hence it falls sneasypr y to the capitalist sections. The election was, in all t...

FOR SALE: A PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901

PGR SALE: A PARTY. In the Senate last week, the elected leader of what describes itself as the 'Labor Party' de livered the pronnnciameuto of his following, and made the somewhat startling — even if long time — admission that He was a member of a party whioh was for sale and they would take good oare nbt to resign themselves into the hands of a buyer they did not like. And then, when the capitalistic Honse had sufficiently recovered from the joyful peal of laughter that shook its dignified eides when the announcement was made, Mr. McGregor proceeded to inform them that : As for the labor party, no attempt made by the Senate could split them in their attitude on the colored labor question, but as to the fiscal question they were all free to take their own course. He himself was a protection ist, and believed local industries should be encouraged. He did not want protection that only served to raise revenue. That was not protec tion at all. Thus in the ranks of an alleged working-clas...

Youths and Old Men. [Newspaper Article] — People — 1 June 1901

Yoaths and Old Men. The men of the- iron trade on strike demand a minimum wage of 7s. per day. The employers desire to mate 7b. the ' standard, ' and to pay ' youths and aged men' nnder that sum. Thin means that instead of 7s beig the minimum as de ? J- J l ? .1 ? ? .'i. _^tl ?uauuuu vy tut? iiieu, » wm uo tuo maximum. The employers desire that ' youths *' shall mean all under 21 years. Ab a matter of fact, any number of yon hs of thar- age are in the fall vigor of manhood, and can do at gO' d a day's work as they'll ever be capable of. Mort's Dock Manager Franki him- elf says that 'men o.' 60 years and over were more able to do ihe work than other men of 50 years of agV This in itself is evidence that the masters are peeking to evade the demacd to estHblish a minimum.
