In 1910 the women chainmakers of Cradley Heath in the West Midlands fought to establish the right to a fair wage. Their victory - following a 10 week strike - was a landmark in the history of Britain 's national minimum wage movement. It changed the lives of thousands of workers who were earning little more than 'starvation wages'. Mary Macarthur was the trade unionist who led the women chain makers in their fight for better pay.
Jane Little is joined by Dr Sheila Blackburn, Liverpool University and Frances O'Grady Deputy General Secretary TUC to discuss the legacy of Mary Macarthur and the women chainmakers strike.
