In Shefield, even as the McKinley Tariff Act was pending, various manufacturers and workers met to demand retaliation, with their mayor sending a letter to every other mayor in the United Kingdom calling for action. A few months after the McKinley Actís new rates were implemented, Shefield firms had been forced to reduce wages, and the Act "sent thousands of workers into the streets at a blow...England is suffering frightfully...from her inability to offer the slightest resistance to hostile tariffs, even to one so unjust and so injurious as the MíKinley Tariff."
