The shearing crew at the Whetstone
plant went oo a strike Monday for
higher pay. They have been working
for 8)b cents, aid struck for 9, and an
a matter of course got it, otherwise
the plant would have been tied up
The at hire u,en beloi g to the u.-.ion,
and when the Whets o -6 crew struck
for higher pay, the Watteoburger ere
at work at the Minor plant, also made
demands for the fame rais, nnd got
it at once. The shearers claim that
they were to receive 9 cents when
they agreed to go to work hern. They
claim that this is about equal to
what the hand shearers are getting,
as they rpceive 8 cents per bead and
board, while the machiue operators
have to pay their board. There is a
vast difference, however in the num
ber of sheep that can be sheared bv
machinery than by the old method,
and this would seem to work in favor
of the machine men.
