"By April, 1941, Vultee found itself facing a shortage of hands. Plus that, it had to step up production to handle the largest individual order ever placed by the War Department for military airplanes. So, with many misgivings and purely for experiment, the personnel office hired 50 of the women who were standing in line. They were given easy jobs, like filing and burring. Within a week 37 of them had graduated to more responsible tasks, and it was no longer an experiment. To everybody's surprise, possibly including the women themselves, they began piling out work as efficiently as the men they had succeeded... Today factories all over the country are putting women on assembly lines. With more than 900,000 of them now working in war industries, Vultee officials still boast that they employ more women in more kinds of jobs than any other war plant.
