Thread Name: Songs about loss of pay, low wages
Subject: RE: Loss of pay
Oh dear me, the mill's ganin fast,
The poor wee shifters canna get their rest,
Shifting bobbins coarse and fine,
There's not much pleasure living,
On ten and nine

For the love of Jesus,
Increase me wages,
From thirty shings,
To one pound ten.
And the old triangle...
