Women's History Month: A Look Back in Time

In honor of Women’s History Month, we bring you this photograph from 1955. Pictured here is a Teamster picker at Knaust Mushroom Company. Many of the workers at the company were women. They wore rigging and headgear lamps to help them navigate through darkness. The workers at the Catskill, New York, company were members of Local 294.
