August 13, 1932
Yesterday was my birthday. I am now 13, old enough to work at the factory with pa, which is good 'cuz we have three weeks till the rent has to be paid Or we will get thrown out of the house. We need pa's money to pay for ma's medecine. Ma is really sick. so I have to work. We got to the factory and there were boys only 2 or 3 years older then me moving carts filled with boat parts. Pa worked here. The boss led me to a different part of the factory. There were men about 25 to 30 years old here building cars. It would be my job to stitch the seats together.
