Payment of wages by check

Payday at one of the then thirteen Libbey-Owens-Ford glass and plaskon plants in the USA around 1950. All wage employees were paid by check every two weeks, normally on Fridays. The original caption reads: "Because of the size of our payroll and the time needed to prepare your check, it is not possible to pay you to the day you receive your wages. For this reason, in most of our plants you are paid up to and including the Thursday of the preceding week."
