Six months at sea in the Merchant Marine

There are many tasks necessary to maintain an industrialised society. Sometimes they are low status or low paying but they are always important. Many of them are invisible jobs where the jobs and the people who perform them are rarely thought of by the wider community. Invisible jobs are overwhelmingly done by men.

A Voice for Men presents a short documentary on life in the US Merchant Marine, a very good example of an invisible job. What men do.
