Women Work in A Textile Factory Ca. 1904

Unknown - 1904
Rate this:
The number of women in the workplace steadily increased from 1870 to 1900. Families found that a single income source was insufficient, and declining birth rates meant more women were able to work outside of the home. Textile factories and other manufacturing jobs employed the majority, but women also found work in offices and retail stores. Wage discrimination was common, with men earning as much as 75 percent more than women. By the turn of the century several women-specific labor unions were formed, including the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU).
