Rosie the Riveter


Many Deaf, including women, works in the aircraft factories during WWII, replacing the men who gone overseas. Anyway "Rosie the Riveter" is actually a song and just heard that there in one still on the job, Elinor Otto, age 93, working at a Boeing plant in California inserting rivets into a C-17.
She started at 65 cents a hour, now earns $38 dollars an hour, stll going strong after all these years, while most of us are collecting our pensions. Deaf Anthology honor all the "Rosies" that serve our country on the home front.
