Presenting Queen Cotton
14 January 2020 | by IcyTonesSee all my reviews

It's a Comedy Movie. Comedy Movies are not my thing, but I was fascinated by the Lancashire accents & the Cotton Mill Factory Work showing how Cotton was spun 'Back Then'. I was also fascinated by the 'job advertisement' that wasn't. "No Hands Wanted' meaning this Mill is fully staffed. However with a little persistence, resistance & 'push back' the 'Hand' was hired.

Why couldn't getting a job in today's job market be that simple? Because it really is that simple. All the BS, brainwashing & red tape about the need for application forms, CV's, etc, it's not about the 'Hands Wanted', it's about political status, stats and figures.
