Wages for Colliery Workers

I have a page out of a wage book for a colliery where my great grandfather worked. It is for May 1938 and has my gt grandfather on the page. It states how many days they worked and the amounts that were deducted out of their pays for health insurance, unemployment insurance and some have deductions for electric light and rent and then it has the balance they took home. Interesting reading when i think that my great grandparents raised 9 kids and 1 grandson on this amount.
