Working-Class Poverty

(p.3) 1 Working-Class Poverty

David Lee McMullen

University Press of Florida

This chapter throws light on the personal and family background of labor activist Ellen Dawson. Dawson was brought up in a working-class background. Like the vast majority of working-class families of the period, the Dawsons were trapped in a day-to-day, hand-to-mouth existence where survival was often their sole objective. Unquestionably, the Dawson family was at the very bottom of the Scottish working class. They were among the poorest of Britain's working poor.
