Industrial Home Work in Massachusetts Women free pdf Excerpt from Industrial Home Work in Massachusetts Women: By the Department of Research Women's Educational and Industrial Union Boston- Prepared Under the Joint Direction of the Massachusetts Bureau of Statistics Is industrial home work a survival of the domestic system of production? Is it a return to the domestic system whereby the tendency of production to escape from the home may be checked and women may evade economic parasitism with its resultant social, economic and moral slavery? Or is it a phase of modern industrialism bearing an intimate relation to every feature and problem of modern production? The first intimation of the widespread custom of so-called home work came to the Department of Research in 1910-1911, while pursuing a study of the manufacture of machine-made clothing. At that time our social experts confidently asserted that there were in Massachusetts no sweated industries. And indeed the sentiment prevailed that whatever of home work existed was either a very small, well-regulated system, applicable only to wearing apparel, or was a survival of the domestic system of production, and appeared in the form of products sold through women's exchanges or directly to the consumer. Now, there is without doubt a group of workers, we do not know how large or how important, who carry over the eighteenth century custom of production in the home. These appear as "home milliners," "home dressmakers," "home bakers" and laundresses, who employ less than five workers and do not therefore form "shops," according to Massachusetts law. But the workers who had commanded our attention and aroused our interest formed a far larger and very different group. They did not provide their own materials. They did not produce a completed article. Many of them did not perform a skilled operation. They did not sell to whom and where they wished, but they received from a factory a certain amount of material which they were to fashion into a specified form and send back to the factory for a specified wage, or they received a partially completed article or part of an article together with material upon which they were to perform a specified process, partially or fully completing its manufacture. None of the handicraft stage with all its inspiration for creation remained. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
