On this date, December 11th, 1905, Joe Galamb was offered three jobs in one morning. The jobs were at Cadillac, Northern, and Ford. This was all before noon. After comparing the opportunities and pay, he decided to work for Ford. He remained at Ford until retirement in 1944.

Here is the story in Joe's own writing from his papers.

Thanks, Bruce.

Here is the first few years of pay at Ford for Joe. As the years went by, the pay and bonuses became much larger.
