The Atrocities of Peace.

A shareholder at the annual meeting of the London and North-Eastern Railway Company told a painful story of the pitiful condition which exists among his unfortunate fellow holders of shares. “He knew women who had to work initials on handkerchiefs because they had got no return on their capital invested in this company” (Star, March 2nd).

The horrible position of these unfortunate women “who had to work” because they got no return on their capital, cannot fail to rend the hearts of the millions of working men and women who “have to work” because they do not own any capital in this or any other company.


(Socialist Standard, May 1928)
