THE TAILORESSES' UNION.

TO THIS EDITOR. Sm, —At the meeting of the master tailors I see by the papers that oae of them said that no less than 53 per cent, increase has been asked for on the present log. I think that that is misleading the public, as the tsitoressea of Dunedin never had a log to work by. They just had to take what prices were given them, and had no other alternative, as every shop gave their own prices, and I don't think there were two alike. I have no hesitation in saying that it will not be less than 53 per cent, on the miserable pay they were getting from some, of the employers ; and I am glad to see that the matter has been taken in hand, as those employers have been reaping all the benefit, while the workers had to take what waa given to them,—l am, etc., One Interested. Dunedin, September 13.
