Hellman files #165

  • Comment

A trawl through Hellman’s archives, in which we uncover gems that are as relevant now as they were then

This AJ cartoon from 25.06.69 illustrated an article on the state of the industry. It seems apt for the traditional 1 May International Worker’s Day holiday, which the union-bashing coalition sought to abolish in 2011.

Construction technology has advanced for iconic towers, but for smaller contracts building operatives work in near Medieval conditions, and contractors often circumvent health and safety regulations and blacklist anyone who complains.

That’s the industry you work in guys!
