you might as well blame industrialization then....
who do you think was doing the weaving, the sewing, the basketmaking, the candlemaking, the quilting. who do you think was raising the chickens,
gathering the eggs, tending the garden?
llike someone on the thread already pointed out, it was always only the rich women who could lay off and not work! women always worked! heck there
are million dollar industries now built up around the work that they were originally doing! and as far as all that work providing a disposable
income, well, let's see, the women sat at home, they sewed (no need to buy clothing), made candles (no need to buy them either), tended gardens,
milked cows, raised chickens, gathered eggs, canned and preserved the harvest//(just think how much that would save on the grocery bill!!), they
weaved the fabric as well as the baskets, they quilted their blankets....and whatever wasn't need by the family was sold or bartered for something
that was needed for the family!!!
what is killing us is all the middle men that have stepped into the middle...wall street being one of those middle men!! and, by the way, why is it
that in most pictures of wall street what you see is a buch of MEN!!!
I think maybe you should think again on this???
