WBC PRESIDENT DEBORAH BRADLEY AND BOARD MEMBER NANCY CZESAK HIGHLIGHTED IN COMMERCIAL OBSERVER ARTICLE ABOUT THE STRUGGLES OF WOMEN IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
You know the photograph: 11 construction workers smoking, eating and socializing across a beam hovering some 800 feet over Manhattan. It was 1932. The project was 30 Rockefeller Center (a.k.a., the RCA, GE and Comcast Building). The image illustrates our temerity, fearlessness and creativity, even in the middle of the Depression. Here we see our country and ourselves at our best, through what is undoubtedly a group of immigrants, not one of them a woman.
