THE TAILORESSES’ UNION.
TO THE EDITOE, Sir,—l have been repeatedly asked by friends to join the Union ; but when I asked whether if I join it I would be compelled to leave my machine at home idle and go and work in a factory, they can’t tell me, but say they think I. would be required to go and work in the factory. Now, sir, if I have to go from my home to work in one of tho faotories I shall not join the Union, as I and several others in this neighborhood can earn more at home and work when it suite ua. We can always get sufficient from shops and warehousemen, by working a very little under manufacturers’ prices, and then have, higher prices than factory hands. I think if the Union could see their way to allow girls in the same position as myself to join and work for shops and warehousemen at factory hands’ prices, they would greatly strengthen tho cause, with which I am in agreement.—lam, etc., Stocking Machine.
