INTRODUCTION

These taDles supplement "Part-Time Jobs for Women—A Study in lO CitieSj"
puolished as Bulletin No. 238 of the United States Department of Labor's
Women's Bureau, Washington 25, D. C. They present detailed lists of jobs
and industries in which women were employed part time in Syracuse in the
winter of 19SO.
Bulletin 238 describes the part-time work experience of management and
employees in a wide range of joos and industries in which women were work­
ing a short week. The majority of woman-employing industries in nonmanu­
facturing were included in the study, 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, temporary and seasonal workers, canvassers and door-todoor saleswomen, insurance 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 supplemen­
tary individual city reports listing the part-time jobs in each city has
been prepared and are availaole on reguest.
These cities are—Dallas, Denver, Des Moines, Milwaukee, New York, Provi­
dence, Richmond (Virginia), San Francisco, Syracuse, and Worcester,
(Massachusetts).
