Librarians: sinecure jobs

"Take these librarians. Except for a few higher executives, they have a sinecure, doing little but checking cards and a small amount of filing. They enjoy good hours. They feel secure in a steady position".

Letter to the editor, Los Angeles Daily News, Voice of the People Section, 1939, cited from Johanna E. Tallman: Check out a librarian. Metuchen: Scarecrow 1985, p. 29
