“A Smile for £300”

Women’s Struggle Notes #2 [1977]

Nursery nurse Christella McCloskey was supposed to smile all the time she was at work. But one day she found she just couldn’t, had a row with her boss, and was sacked.

The smile was back yesterday as she was awarded more than £300 compensation by an industrial tribunal for unfair dismissal.

She was under orders to smile and be happy and cheerful at her work at Warley Green Kindergarten, Smethwick.

One day, when she was in the process of divorcing her husband, the roof of her flat had blown off and she had had a row with workmen she could not manage a smile.
