There is not much chance you will see an advertisement
from Espey Manufacturing & Electronics
now like this one from a 1948 issue of Radio News magazine. Espey is still in the
business of defense electronics, but their advertising / public relations group would be hauled
into court if they produced copy like that today. In fact, I hope as a result of my bringing
up the subject that some overly sensitive snowflake won't try to sue them for past offenses.
Does this documented instance of former official company policy suffice as legal proof of
a corporate history of sexism and exploitation in our current litigious atmosphere? You could
probably lose your job just by having this page open on your lab bench computer
or cellphone in view of one of the
aforementioned extremist types. Is that the sound of ambulance-chasing lawyers scratching
notes on their yellow legal pads that I hear in the background?
