      Democracy at Work is a brief documentary that was created toward the end of World War II. It’s purpose was to bring to light the need for labour-management committees. It was a time in Canadian history when the government and its industries were heading into a post-war era where manufacturing would need to be transformed into peacetime. Their purpose was to reduce absenteeism and workplace accidents while improving productivity. They wanted to achieve this, while keeping the workplace’s morale high.

      This is the first film that was added to documentary-log.com’s ‘From the Vault Category’. It is a unique documentary, as this 18-minute film was not created recently. It was instead made at the end of the war, making it a historiography.

      These types of films are extraordinary as they generally give a different perspective on the era in which it was filmed. It is timely and more informative. Although this documentary is brief, it still offers a powerful message and a in-depth look into the issues Canada was being faced with.

      So, sit back and enjoy this brief look into the democratic ideals that were being formulated and articulated toward the end of the war.

      I think you either have the wrong video posted here, or you have penned an erroneous description for it.

      * The correct plot summary that is published for THIS film is: (abrv.)

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Democracy at Work:

      A 1944 Canadian film introducing the new Labor-Management Committees
      established between employers’ federations and the trade unions for the
      purpose of improving industrial productivity, reducing workplace accidents
      and absenteeism, while keeping employee moral high in the post war era.

      I wondered why I wasn’t able to put the 2 & 2 together of the posted video description

      “…..democratic ideals being formulated and articulated near the end of World War II….”

      and its discrepancy to what I was watching!

      I do like the idea for old “vault videos” , but I doubt I would have given this one a look at all had the correct synopsis had been available to read before hand.

      Hey K, right you are. This one is kind of boring and not what I thought. Whoops!
      I’m going to add another ‘from the vault’ that will be more interesting: a short one about nazi brutality documented in 1945. Nothing dull about one of the most horrible times in human history.
