Things you always wanted to say but were afraid

Women in the workplace circa 1900 and before

My grandmother on the assembly line at Fleischmann's Yeast in Dallas, Texas circe 1933

I learned something recently.  Many, some of a few – I don’t know which – wore a catheter when working.  They did this because there were no facilities available for them in town.  So under those long, dragging the dirty ground skirts was a gross urine filled catheter.  The Mr. always told me that if you lived back in “the good ole days” you would not call them the “good ole days.”

I wonder what else the workplace held for women back in the “good ole days.”
