INCREASED PAY TO CANAL EMPLOYEES

[People’s Press 9 December 1902]

Mr. German’s efforts to obtain increased remuneration for employees of the Welland canal has been successful to a very appreciative and welcome extent at least. Hitherto the wages of laborers on the canal have been reduced from $1.50 to $1.25 during the winter months, beginning with November. Official notice has been received that hereafter the winter reduction will not be made; $1.50 per diem will be paid in winter as well as summer. Although but simple justice the concession is no less a welcome.
