60-Plus Years and Surviving

In 1938, Franklin D. Roosevelt was on his second of what would be an unprecedented four term presidency. The Yankees won their third successive World Series in a four game sweep, “what’s new,” of that year’s victim, the Chicago Cubs. Bread sold for $.09 per pound, the minimum wage hovered at $.25 an hour, and gas held stable at $.19 per gallon. Spencer Tracy received the Academy Award for Best Actor in, “Boy’s Town,” Betty Davis won Best Actress in, “Jezebel,” and the Best Picture was, “You Can’t Take it With You.”

You Can’t Take It
With You

How appropriate. In June 1938, professional employees working for Westinghouse Electric Company were told basically the same thing, when their salaries were cut by 10%.

This across-the-board action by Westinghouse created discontent from Pittsburgh to Baltimore and spawned the first Bargaining Committee in 1938, which consisted of six engineers. The creation of this committee subsequently resulted in the “birth” / certification of the Salaried Employees Association, S.E.A., on June 13, 1939.
