Collective wage payments in England

The payment of wages at an inn to child-labourers of a brickyard in central England in 1871. From the accompanying text: "The masters pay the men, who afterwards pay the children. The latter are generally paid at the public-houses so common in the vicinity of the brickfields [...] The earnings of the children vary from 3s. to 6s. per week of seventy hours. Sometimes the children have to wait hours before they receive their money, and not unfrequently they are made completely drunk while so waiting [...] some of the public-houses belong to foremen or sub-contractors, who carry on their trade as if there was not such a thing as a Truck Act."
