Description

I started with the Housekeeping unit and I was assigned to Martha Washington Elementary School and that was the Elementary school I had attended and the first day on the job I will never forget it. We were suppose to mop the hallways the corridors. I think my mop weighed 110 dry, I weighed 98 pounds my mop weighed 110 before I put water on it…I scrubbed that floor like there was no tomorrow I was so glad to have a job I was so glad to earn some money. Back in that era a dollar and a quarter an hour were big bucks.
