Among those whose wages were re- duced were 50,000 coal miners in Northum- berland, Cumberland, Bristol, and Somerset- shire, 7,500 ironstone miners in Cleveland, 6,900 blast-furnacemen in Durham, Cleve- land, and Cumberland, 4,000 ironmoulders in Lancashire, and 2,000 engineers at Dundee. The number whose wages were increased in- cluded 1,250 blast-furnacemen and 5,000 iron and steel workers in South Wales and Mon- mouthshire. The total computed effect of all the changes was a net decrease of nearly X4,100 per week.
