520    By World War I, the Northwestern Knitting Company was the 
       largest workplace for gainfully employed women in 
       Minnesota and the largest garment factory in the United 
       States. Lars Olsson investigates the interplay of class, 
       gender, marital status, ethnicity, and race in the labor 
       relations at the factory, illuminating the lives of the 
       women who worked there. Representing thirty nationalities,
       particularly Scandinavian, the women worked long hours for
       low pay in roles that were strictly divided along ethnic 
       and gendered lines, while the company directors and 
       stockholders made enormous profits off of their labor. 
       Management developed paternal strategies to bind the 
       workers to the company and preempt unionization, including
       bonus programs, minstrel shows, and a pioneering 
       industrial welfare program. With the US entry into the war,
       the company was contracted to produce underwear for 
       soldiers, and management expanded the metaphor of "the 
       Munsingwear Family" to construct not just company loyalty,
       but national loyalty. This book sheds new light on women's
       labor in WWI and the lives of textile workers in the 
       United States.--|cProvided by publisher.
