Wanted, a Young Woman to Do Housework C. Hélène Barker Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
This book has hints of being written between 1900 and the 1920s by a woman of the upper middle to lower upper class but one definitely from the Leisure Class. Helene Barker attacks the Washington D. C. laws regulating industrial cleaning employees, but ignoring domestic cleaning employees who were 'abused' by lack of regulations that led to unfair pay, extraordinarily long work days, and sometimes harsh demands by the employer. Barker in turn begins her book with the argument to leisure housewife, who have servants, that if they run their home more like a business then there will be increased economic and financial benefit and lays out her theories along with examples from her life or those of her friends.
