Be a Healthy Shipbuilder!

Here's an early Kaiser Shipyard solicitation for Kaiser's employer-sponsored health insurance. Note the price at fifty cents per week. Seems like, during World War II, it was your patriotic duty as a Kaiser shipyard employee to enroll. 

Lots of other cool Kaiser Shipyard health plan history and information to be gleaned at Rosie the Riveter World War II National Historical Park in Richmond, California.
