Did flappers have jobs? – 1920S Flapper Dresses Plus Size
Well, not quite.
Flappers needed no money but sometimes a small one. They had to do all sorts of things to make money. In the spring of 1863, the city held a “flapper’s dinner,” an event that brought together the many flapper societies in the city. The first “flapper’s dinner” also had some entertainment, and, apparently, a few jobs for the flappers. However, it wasn’t until February of 1865 that a flapper’s dinner was held again.
When did they get their first jobs?
The first flappers were paid very well. The salary of one flapper in March of 1865 was $1.65 for a half hour.
The flapper’s dinner (a.k.a. “flapper’s dinner”) started when an organized group of flappers organized for the first time in May of 1865, but it wasn’t until the spring of 1865 that a “flapper’s dinner” was held in the city. For a nickel a person, you could eat a “flapper’s dinner” and earn money for your flapper’s dinner.
The day after the first ‘flapper’s dinner” held in downtown Maycomb, the “Flapper’s Feast,” the mayor declared “no flapper shall ever work as a house-painter, masons, or ironworker, on any pay except that which he can get in the streets.” For a whole day, “flapper’s” were encouraged to get out of the street, work indoors, and then go back to where they belonged, to “flapper’s feast” again, only this time they would get paid. In May 1865, the city made flapping and flapper’s dance its annual business by announcing that “the flappers and flapper’s dance and flapper’s feast, of which they are a part, are for a long term, and their employment is to continue until the next meeting of the officers of the city and county of Maycomb.”
The Mayor’s proclamation made the flapper’s society the sole employer of the flappers and flapper’s dance. The next Saturday, May 9, all flappers and dancers who had not been paid yet on the day the proclamation was made were called to work.
What were they doing?
They didn’t just flop and flicker their way through their “day.” They worked, and sometimes they worked long hours, in order for their society to be
