Smart woman

Smart woman is second from right in front. She seems to be the only one using that little raised shelf to keep one foot raised at a time, which saves the lower back. I learned years ago that standing flat footed for hours does a job on the back. Keeping one foot up on a book or platform helps alleviate that stress.

Standing ?

Could never figure out the rule why employees had to stand at their stations to do their work when the job at hand could easily be done sitting, I would have brought my own stool.
