Episode 5: Frances Perkins

Posted July 2nd, 2018 at 01:00 PM by Shoulders of Giants

Hi folks!

Since the 4th of July is just around the corner we decided to record an episode on an American who deserved more recognition. We ended up picking Frances Perkins, Secretary of Labor for FDR. She was more than just the first female cabinet member for any president or the longest serving member for that matter. Her legacy reshaped working conditions within America that still exist today. Her work at providing security for those in need was the basis of New Deal legislation.

She was a servant of the people in the truest sense of the term. To listen to the whole episode you can go to iTunes and search "Shoulders of Giants" or directly download the audio here
