Abstract and Keywords

The United States’ entry into the Second World War stimulated economic growth and eliminated the unemployment that had plagued the nation during the Great Depression. By 1943, a nation-wide labor shortage created new employment opportunities for millions of women, African-Americans, and other groups that previously had been denied access to well-paid skilled jobs. Women who worked as secretaries, clerks, maids and waitresses were hired to do “man-sized jobs”, while others—many from the middle classes—entered the workforce for the first-time. Mass Transportation, a trade journal for the trucking and hauling industry, sought to aid its subscribers with timely advice on how best to manage their new female employees.
