But then Ellen discovers that the work of the cabinet polishers - her job - is to be reorganised and they will be doing more work for less pay. Ellen feels like it is a betrayal whilst Sadie is more pragmatic. But she tells Ellen about trade unions and how at the factory she worked in before there was a strike. And Ellen gets an idea. . .
