[Paycheck Stubs of a WWII-era Domestic Auto Worker]

25.00

170 uninterrupted paycheck stubs, running from December 30, 1939 to February 7, 1943, belonging to Sherwood Henderson, an employee at the Chevrolet transmission plant in Toledo, OH. Henderson's wages grew from an average of approximately $30/week in the beginning of 1940 to as high as $100, consistently in early 1942, likely due to the plant's increased output connected to the War effort. An uncommon surviving record of labor, wages, and the auto industry during World War II. 

170 paper paycheck stubs. Approximately 3 1/2" square, some slightly larger. Moderate handling wear, curling to edges. Overall good.
