TO THE EDITOB. Ste,—Now that most of the tradespeople have commenced closing at a decent hour, let me write a few lines with regard to the hairdressers of this City, who work constantly from eight o’clock in the morning till nine or ten o’clock every night, and on Saturdays till eleven or twelve o’clock, employing young men who, I am sure, if these long hours are kept up for any length of time, will permanently injure their health, I have been in other parts of the colonies where all respectable tradesmen of this class are joined together by means of a hairdressers’ union. Now, Mr Editor, what is to prevent the City hairdressers from doing the same, and closing their shops at say eight o’clock week nights and ten on Saturdays, which would give them a chance of patronising the theatre and our approaching Exhibition. If they would only put their heads together, and call a meeting of masters and employes, they would never regret it. All shopkeepers are closing their places of business ; why cannot the public get their wants attended to at a reasonable hour in this particular class of trade also ?—I am, etc., A JOURNEYMAN. Dunedin, August 30.
