Storyboard Text

  • Dear Father and Mother, Some of the other girls have gone on strike due to cuts in our wages including me.  They say that if you go on strike you lose your job.   It would make me very happy if you could pick me up.  I can't stay here any longer.   Sincerely,  Abby
  • The next day... 
  • Dear Abby, I am sorry I cannot take you home.  Keep your job.  Less money is better than no money.  It is very bad for us back at home.  There is little food and little money, but the money that you have sent us has helped a great deal.  I fear that even if I could pick you up you would no find our conditions to your liking.  Sincerely, Father
  • My father said he can't take me home.  My family really needs the money.  I have to end my strike.  Luckily, I have lost my job yet.  
  • Fine.  I'll continue to strike without you.  you'll see I shall keep my job and the wages will not be cut.  
  • My family needs all money they can get.  
  • Due to your dedication, we decided to give you a raise.  I am afraid you will no longer be working with your former companions.  
  • The company is very glad you decided to continue working with us.  
  • ... These are your new co-workers.  
  • Dear mother and father, It pains me to say that my friends have been fired for their protest, but I have gotten a substantial raise due to my loyalty.  I guess America isn't ready for protests from women just yet.    Sincerely, Abby
