WORCESTER BOARD OF GUARDIANS - An Interesting Presentation
A woman who applied for relief stated that for the past two years she had been doing charing work for a lady in St. John's. Asked how it was that she did not receive National Insurance payment, she said that she was not insured as she was a "casualty" worker. Several members expressed the opinion that the woman ought to have been insured, and the Clerk said that some offending employers had had to stamp cards for a long period back. It was decided to report the matter to the Insurance Committee.
