Espey Manufacturing & Electronics - RF CafeThere is not much chance you will see an advertisement from Espey Manufacturing & Electronics now like this one from a 1948 issue of Radio News magazine. Espey is still in the business of defense electronics, but their advertising / public relations group would be hauled into court if they produced copy like that today. In fact, I hope as a result of my bringing up the subject that some overly sensitive snowflake won't try to sue them for past offenses. Does this documented instance of former official company policy suffice as legal proof of a corporate history of sexism and exploitation in our current litigious atmosphere? You could probably lose your job just by having this page open on your lab bench in view of one of the aforementioned extremist types. Is that the sound of ambulance-chasing lawyers scratching notes on their yellow legal pads that I hear in the background?
