Ladies Answer Call by the Millions
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Social Security Administration (SSA), in its bulletin Vol. 5, No. 7 released in July of this year, reports it estimates that by the end of 1942, “…about 4.5 million women will be directly engaged in war work.” Among the details presented in the report, it has been found that women workers require less supervision than men, and once trained and as experienced as a man—even on difficult machining operations—a woman can transfer to other jobs as readily as a man. The SSA report goes on to state that “…some means will have to be found to relieve women homemakers of part of their family obligations before they can assume work outside the home.”
