VIDEO: 1959 – Women in the workforce (MORE: “CRUSH ON FRED’S POLITICS” DEBUTS!)

Posted by: ST on June 21, 2007 at 9:20 pm

To balance out the previous post with a bit of humor, I wanted to post the following 1959 training video on women in the workforce, and the problems some men had with it back then:

DollyMix describes it:

Here’s a nifty little blast from the past. Take a journey with Brad as he describes the downfalls of having too many women in his department. Those darn women’s always make a fuss, and keep runnin’ off to get married! “In a matter of days, her workbench looked more like her dressing table!”

It’s unintentionally funny, and also shows us how far we (not just women, but men to) have come along since those days. ;;)

Thanks to ST reader Lorica for sending along the link to the story, which I couldn’t direct-link to because Earthlink generated its own link for the original one.

Update: Staying on a lighter note, check out the “I’ve Got a Crush on Fred Thompson’s Politics” vid (via Don Surber):

Much better than the “Obama crush” video, IMO …

    Yeah in the ‘Fifties we blamed all the workplace problems on women. Now we know better, we blame them all on the men.

    Watched the cool music vidoe, nicely done, but wish that guy’s hat had been a bit bigger, kinda like Toby
    Keith’s or Clint Black’s but this video is soooo much better than the tart’s who are on osama bahama’s one and does hillery even have one? Guess I need to link back over to the other site and check it out but a good one for her would be the YMCA guys spelling out her name with big ankle pictures.
    Man, I am a mean heffer ain’t I? :d:x
