Interview with Ethel Mae Matthews
QUESTION 15
JACKIE SHEARER:

What were you fighting for?

ETHEL MAE MATTHEWS:

To keep the sale tax down. We didn't need it because we were poor, and- and we couldn't pay it. We was already paying four cents on the dollar. And we pay up there one more penny, would be bad on us, and one more penny would have been bad. But it came up I think three years later. And the same peoples who helped us to fight it get it knocked up. The same peoples who went up three years before, three years later, they want to hit us.
