FRANCES PERKINS: The most important liberal you’ve never heard of.
The Frances Perkins Museum from Damariscotta will offer a presentation and a short documentary film on Frances Perkins.
Frances Perkins was a Sociologist and Worker Rights activist who served as FDR's Secretary of Labor 1933-1945, the longest serving in that position and first woman appointed to a US Cabinet.
We ALL have benefited from her work.
- She executed the Civil Conservation Corp, 1st minimum wage and overtime laws, and laws against child labor: all part of FDR's New Deal.
- She wrote the Social Security Act of 1935. Today's Medicare, Social Security and ACA are all based on Frances Perkins novel use of the power to tax 84 years ago.
Come learn about this important woman in history.....
