Plot Summary

 top   

Naive Stanley Windrush returns from the war, his mind set on a successful career in business. Much to his own dismay, he soon finds he has to start from the bottom and work his way up, and also that the management as well as the trade union use him as a tool in their fight for power.

Summary written by Anonymous

In postwar Britain tricky Bertram Tracepurcel plans to get an Arab arms contract for his missile company then arrange for a strike so that his partner Sidney Cox gets the work at a higher price. Central to the scheme is Tracepurcel's innocent nephew whom he persuades to take a job on the shop-floor knowing he is bound to cause union problems. With shop steward Fred Kite always ready to assert workers' rights trouble is indeed assured, though not quite in the way Tracepurcell and Cox intended.
