This chapter describes the impact of World War I on the lives of Scottish workers. The Glasgow Rent Strikes of 1915 were the first important point of confrontation between the workers—or more accurately the wives of workers—and the government during the war. These strikes were a direct result of the start of the war and the greed of war-profiteering slumlords. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of this profiteering was its acceptance by the British government.
