Garment Making Industries
Excerpt from Garment Making Industries The trade of garment making should be of special interest, locally, because of the proportionate numbers of women engaged in the trade in Cincinnati; and it is perhaps of some general interest, historically, because of its being one of the traditional women's occupations, that has increased and not waned in importance. It is gratifying, therefore, to know of this definite effort, looking towards the future progress and welfare of so large a body of industrial workers. Such a descriptive analysis as the one following, which shows the advantages and drawbacks in this trade, and which sets forth the educational possibilities for development, ought to increase interest, and ought to help to dignify this necessary, useful and honorable trade. Hence it is a privilege to say a word by way of preface to a study which champions the cause of women workers, for whose progress too few really care; the public, in the main, being interested only in the products of their labor. Such efforts as this made by the Chamber of Commerce is helping to develop, in Cincinnati's industrial and educational life, a spirit of co-operation. We are glad, therefore, of the opportunity to further in any way so effective a method of arousing the interest of the community in its vital problems.
