This pamphlet contains the results of a survey conducted by the Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau on wages, hours and conditions of employment in beauty shops in the early 1930s. Four particular cities were studied for this report: Philadelphia, New Orleans, St. Louis and Columbus. There is also a 10-page section related specifically to African American owned shops.
