In Great Britain
they have a very strong trade union movement which alters the situation materially. In this country we have no strong trade union movement, especially in those trades *where this legislation would apply, and it would be very difficult for an isolated worker to take action. In England the whole trade union movement would stand behind a victimized worker, and go on a general strike rather than permit an injustice. Here the worker has not that protection, and therefore the state or the commission has a duty to protect the welfare of the individual worker.
