A REASON FOR STRIKES.

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l noticed in last week's* Star a letter under the above heading, and I beg to endorse the expressions of "A Worker." The treatment of us unfortunate and underpaid dressmakers and milliners is, to Bay tho least, shameful. And only that the larger portion of those bo employed have their parents' and friendß'homes to stay in they would starve (or worse) and I cannot see why to give the employers large profits, or those gentlemen's wives and daughters, or, in some instances, their "sistere or their cousins or, their aunts," an opportunity of leading the fashion, other gentlemen's (I use the word advisedly) daughters should slave on starvation wages. I hope to see a meeting called at once to remedy this state of matters. "A Worker" only stated a part of our grievances.—l am, etc, A Dressmaker. Dunedin, October 16.
