Today’s labor quote: Phyllis McKey Gould
“I’d never worked in my life. I loved the look of welding, the smell of it… You’d look through really dark glass and all you’d see was the glow. You moved the welding rod in tiny, circular motions, making half-crescents. If you did it right, it was beautiful. It was like embroidery.”
Gould, a welder at the Richmond, California Kaiser shipyard Number 2 during World War Two
