48-Hour Week is Announced
January 13, 1946

The Fruit Growers Supply Company, starting January 17, went on a 48-hour week basis instead of the former 54 hours.

The mill will work from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., six days a week, the change being due to winter conditions.

In the six days ending January 12, the local branch of the company shipped to southern California, 60 carloads of box shook, setting up a weekly record.
