    At the height of the boom in 2005 it was the worst labor participation rate in 18 years.

    Some perspective.

    Dad, again, the participation rate was much lower in the '50s that it is now. Do you consider them to be a far worse economic time than now?

    Again, were millions of women active participants in the labor market in the '50s?
