[The Fisher Body Old Crates, a group of women who retired from salaried clerical jobs at the Fisher Body plant in Lansing, MI, offer a female perspective of work in the factory during careers spanning five decades].

Though never UAW members, they discuss their job responsibilities, promotions and work relations with male employees and managers. They describe disparate treatment including being forced to quit when they became noticeably pregnant, restrictions on women smoking and other double standards.
