Women In “Glass Houses.”
An interesting point was raised yesterday at the meeting of the Mexborough and District Employment Committee, when Mr. Barron referred to the question of the employment of women in the glass works.
He suggested that owing the difficulty getting sufficient labour in the district, the time for the cessation of women labour in the glass works should extended.
Mr. Keyes, of Conisborough, protested against any extension, adding that women who had worked in a glass-house were not fit to become wives or mothers. Glass works were no place for women.
It was decided to recommend the temporary extension pending the decision of the Ministry of Labour.
