Description JULY 1960 Ð IS IT HIGHER WAGES AT LAST?. SAED:POLITICS:PERSONALITY:DRUM JULY 1960 Ð Is it higher wages at last? Ð Lazarus Tabane operates a machine for an oil company in Johannesburg. After an increase his pay went up to £4 11s. 9d. a week & £18 a Month, which meant a lot to him. But then he has to support four children and his mother. A tough business. There is a bold cry going up in the country. This time itÕs louder than ever before. ItÕs stronger, better organized, and backed by solid determination. Big Businessmen, industrialist, trade unionist, Bazaar-owners, politician and leading church men - all the people who count are involved. They are saying: Pay The Black Man More and Let Him Stand On His Own Feet! (Photograph by Peter Magubane ©Baileys Archives) NEG 34
