“In 1910, the women chain-makers of Cradley Heath focussed the world’s attention on the plight of Britain’s low-paid women workers involved in the ‘home-working sweated industries’, hammering out chain links in the backyards of their homes with their babies and children, for 5 shillings (25p) for a 50-hour week.

Led by the charismatic union organiser and campaigner, Mary Reid Macarthur, hundreds of women laid down their tools to strike for a living wage. the success of the ten-week strike    more than doubled their earnings and helped to make the principle of a national minimum wage a reality.”
