RE LONG HOURS.
TO THE EDITOR.
g n . J can fully endorse the statements made 'by " Visitor " in your Saturday evening's issue re long hours for young girls in refreshment rooms. There is one shop in particular where the girls start at 7 a.m., and four nights out of the six work till 11.30. As far as meals are concerned, they have no regular time, but have to snatch a piece as best they can, or go without. With the approaching busy season, the girls are strongly of the opinion that there will be no nights off at all, and the idea of getting a meal is entirely disabused from their minds.
I think, sir, something ought to be done in this matter, I for one will be only too happy to assist in trying to get for the girls thus employed some little time for rest and recreation.—l am, etc., One Who Knows. Dunedin, November 4.
