Source: National Society for the Promotion of Industrial Education
Description: This table describes the number of people who worked in different occupations in a flour mill.
- How many different jobs were there in a mill, according to this chart?
- Together, wheat loaders and packers made up approximately what fraction of the total number of workers?
- It's unlikely that a mill would hire nearly thirty people to fight fires. Other than a fire fighter, what might a fireman be?
- Some jobs, like flour tester, required only a small number of people. What might be a reason for hiring only a few people to perform a job?
