Recruiting Workers For Social Security During World War II

So the pay wasn't great--the starting salary of $1560 in today's dollars works out to a little over $21k, for a 48-hour workweek--but they did get 26 days of vacation and 15 days of sick leave. And housing was very affordable as a percentage of income.

That was more than a lot of our soldiers were making at that time.
