This is a disaster for Carol. She is illiterate; she survives by deflecting attention. The other women covered for her, reading addresses, matching them to parcels. Where else will she be able to work?
Her husband has made her go into work today. Sod the others, he said, we need the money.
So she's sitting on the train, betraying her friends, but she's thinking: it was wrong of David not to pay us properly and tell National Insurance. He got just as much out of it as we did. Maybe if I go and tell him that, maybe he could charge more for the packing and pay us. Maybe if I told him what it means to me.
So she sits on the train, butterflies in her tummy. But she's going to see the boss and stand her ground.
It won't do any good.
