      For American Experience. Post Production Editor Tens of thousands of young men and women from farm families could hop on the train to go where the jobs were: the newly industrializing cities. Women's labor has been integral to building and maintaining a strong American economy whether through paid employment or support of family businesses. Immigrant women have been well represented in the labor force throughout American history. Their attainment of the American dream has often been married to a vision of economic prosperity.
