Ladies come out of the Kitchen – Minute 17

There were no factories open – no place in the country. All laid off – all the people laid off. Railroad people 10 years seniority laid off for ten years, you know. Couldn’t work. Wasn’t any work. Whole families coming through – box cars – looking for work. No work. It never happened till ’42 – the War started before the men got back to work. That’s when the ladies come out of the kitchen. Went to work. DIR HUNTER WEEKS: Again, that’s causing that change – you know it’s the constant change. WALTER: That’s the changes you know and every change – every change is good. I remember when radio first started. Actors out in Hollywood all thought they were all going to lose their jobs. Radio just created so many more jobs.
