Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

by Robert Tressell

An eye opening work of uncanny relevance today in my Australian context as the present Liberal government proceeds to emasculate the employees and unions with draconian Industrial Relations legislation.

Coupled with Anti-Terrorist legislation removing individual rights and freedoms which US citizens have enshrined in their constitution I hold grave fears for this country which has been so good to me.

I believe people have forgotten how bad things can be when left up to the "bosses discretion" and how hard won all of the working conditions we enjoy today were.

In 10 years time Australia will be ripe for "The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists of Australia 2015."
Unfortunately, probably true for a lot of countries. How sad is that?

I will be recommending this book to as many people as I can.
