INTRODUCTION
These tables supplement "Part-Time Jobs for Women—A Study in lO CitieSj"
published as Bulletin No. 238 of the United States Department of Labor's
Women's Bureau, Washington 25j D. C. They present detailed lists of jobs
and industries in which women were employed part time in San Francisco in
the summer of 1949.
Bulletin 238 describes the part-time work experience of management and em­
ployees in a wide range of jobs and industries in which women were working
a short week. The majority of woman-employing industries in nonmanufactur­
ing were included in the studyj with the following exceptions: Agriculture
some service industries, such as household employment and maintenance work
(office cleaning); Government service; and self-employed persons. Also the
following selected occupations were excluded: Public school teachers, tem­
porary and seasonal workers, canvassers and door—to—door saleswomen, in­
surance agents, real estate saleswomen, theatrical and professional
entertainers.
Part-time work by students was not included.
(In New York
City the study was limited to three industries—museums and art galleries,
advertising agencies, and publishing houses.)
The information was collected during the period from June 1949 to June 30,
1950, by Women's Bureau representatives directly from employers and from
women part-time workers in lO cities located in various sections of the
country.
Since the information in the bulletin is not shown by individual city but
only by the aggregate findings of the lO cities, a series of supplementary
individual city reports listing the part-time jobs in each city has been
prepared and are available on request.
These cities are - Dallas, Denver, Des Moines, Milwaukee, New York, Provi­
dence, Richmond (Virginia), San Francisco, Syracuse, and Worcester.
