Made in Lavenham

Wages were notoriously poor, possibly on the grounds that the company were paying for transport to and from the premises every day. Occasionally overtime on a Saturday was on offer but even with the extra hours I never managed to make as much as £40 in any one week.

I remember that there was a points system whereby if a particular belt were to hit its target, everyone on the belt would gain a point, which translated into a bonus at the end of the week. Targets were set almost impossibly high. In any case, points only amounted to a few pence extra in your pay packet.
