The pajama game by Stanley Donen ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sleepwear, a labor dispute, and singing come together for perhaps the first and only time in film history in The Pajama Game. In a small Iowa town, the main employer is the SleepTite Pajama Company, where the mostly female workforce is demanding a badly needed 7 1/2 cent-an-hour pay increase. Competing firms wages have already gone up, so why not theirs? Babe, the headstrong leader of the workers' Union stages a garment factory showdown with management, represented in person by the new factory superintendent Sid. When a work slowdown gets no results, Babe stops the machinery, and Sid has to fire her. They were falling in love, but since he's management and she's labor, can that ever work? Featuring members of the original Broadway cast (Doris Day was not in the original cast)

Bringing Rights Home : Labour's Plans to Incorporate the European Convention on Human Rights into UK Law by Jack Straw ( )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For almost 50 years, British people have been subject to the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) - a convention signed, ratified and supported by successive UK Governments, including the present Conservative administration. Yet because the Convention has never been incorporated into UK law, British people are not able to have those rights protected by British courts. As a result, British people are forced to undergo the lengthy and costly process of appealing to a Strasbourg court which is neither sufficiently familiar with, nor sensitive to, British legal and constitutional traditions. This article sets out Labour's proposals to bring rights home to British people, and shows how incorporating the ECHR into British law will cut costs, save time and give power back to British courts
