OVERWORKED DRESSMAKERS. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. SIR,-With your courtesy and kind permission I beg to complain, through the medium of your excellent paper, of a dreadful evil-namely, that of 12 or 14 hours' duty, which myself and other young ladies in the drapery as well as other places of business, have to perform daily. The "Factory Act," sir, I suppose is not in operation in Wales Is it because we Welsh women are fonder of work than our neighbouring sisters ? Oh what miseries do these excessively long hours inflict upon us. Our lives are indeed nothing better than those of slaves, and sick- ness and premature death are to be attributed to them. It is gratifying to find that active steps have and are now being taken by the working men of Great Britain towards getting the nine hours' movement into vogue. Would to goodness that some considerate person or per- sons would take our case in hand, and thereby relieve us from such imposition and slavery.—I am. yours respect- fully, A DRESSMAKER Llanelly. ———
