Firstly was dismissed when she came back

April 9, 2019 Business

Firstly we come to Mr Birling, the head of the family. He is very selfish and self-centered and is a representation of the upper class and Capitalism at the time. He had Eva Smith working for him in his factory and as she was a good worker she was about to be promoted. However she was dismissed when she came back from her holidays with the other workers because she was the leader of a group of workers who went on strike for wanting higher wages. Mr Birling refused saying that: “Well, it’s my duty to keep labor costs down, and if I’d agreed to this … we’d have added about twelve percent to our labor costs.” This shows that he cares more about his business than about his workers.
