"Four Years in the Underbrush: Adventures as a Working Woman in New York"

Author: 
Anonymous

The unnamed author spent four years posing as an "unskilled working woman of New York City."

Book Excerpt: 
". . .All during those eventful four years I remained in the underbrush - the world of the unskilled working woman of New York City. During that time I held twenty-five different positions in almost as many different fields of work. . .Working shoulder to shoulder and living among my fellow workers on my wages, I became in reality one of the class known as Labor. I shared its misery during the months preceding the entrance of our country into the World War - caused by the continued low wages after the enormous increase in price of every necessity of life; and I suffered along with my fellows the nerve-racking period when our plea for an increase of wage hung in the balance. . ."
