Factory Work In The 50's

Linda, United States

My dad worked in a tractor factory in the 50's. The union kept going on strike. To make more money he went to television and radio school to learn how to repair them. But when he fixed our friends and family's televisions he hated to ask for money so he didn't make any money. We lived in a new housing project with lots of young families. The mom's all stayed home and got together and smoked cigarettes and drank coffee and gave each other Toni permanents while us kids played outside.

    Not many moms could afford to stay home full time today
