Mike decides not to give the girls a Christmas bonus as profits are down. Ivy gets upset as the girls plan how to spend their bonuses so she tells them that there won't be one. Hilda feels worn out, clearing up after Sally as well as doing her work. Susan tells Mike he should be more friendly with his staff; he's letting them down by not giving bonuses. She tells him that he must move with the times. Alec tells Bet he's got a new act she can have at a special rate. She realises she has no option but have them. Mike tries to explain to the girls why there will be no bonuses. Susan suggests to Mike that they produce children's clothes to bring in new orders. He tells her to stick to housekeeping. Hilda tells Sally that she's sick of being treated like a char in her own home. Sally tells her that she didn't think the house was so special - it's a bit of a dump. Hilda is mortally offended.
