Excerpt from Shipbuilding and Shipping Record, Vol. 11: A Journal of Shipbuilding, Marine Engineering, Docks, Harbours and Shipping; March 14, 1918 The main fact which was brought out by reports, not only from employers but from representatives of men, and representatives of departments, was that whether due to labour unrest, strikes, or difficulties of whatever kinds, the men in the yards were not working as if the life of the country depended upon their exertions, nor were they working even as they did in the fourth quarter of last year. Employers also were not perhaps in all cases doing all that could be done to increase output. The long strain of the war must have its effect on the nerves of some of them, as it had on everyone else. He would not like to suggest that the vast majority both of employers and of men were not actuated by the call of patriotism but the serious unrest which existed in January would have its effect on the completions in later months, and the January drop could not be fully accounted for otherwise than that it was caused by unrest in its widest interpretation. He was driven to the con elusion that even at this late date the situation was not fully realised. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
