A note on Huber during the depression

By Mark Schleppi

We know from survivors and family members of Huber employees that during the depths of the depression Huber employees worked without getting paid. The company did not have the funds. Imagine how dedicated a work force Huber had to have for employees continuing to report to work even though they would not receive a paycheck at the end of the week. As I understand it, when Huber made a sale everyone who worked for the company then got paid something. Given this, the importance of the sales of 348 tractors to B. F. Avery Company in 1930 & 1931 cannot be overstated!
