TO THE EDITOR.
Sir, —I was very much annoyed when I noticed the report referring to the prices of thooatmealandflourbags in last night’s paper. I can hardly credit that any firm would offer any woman la Id per gross for making oatmeal or flourbags. I have been working for several firms these last seven years, and I have never been offered any such price. I can afford to pay my girls 12a per week. They work from 9 a.m. till 6 p.m., and 2 p.m. on Saturdays, and they are not sweated. lam quite satisfied with what I have left to myself after paying everything. —I am, etc., Mrs Ewing, Walker street. Dunedin, June 11.
