Barry found a Sept. 1891 cite.
4 February, 1891. Indiana(PA) Messenger. 1/4. [Headline] SWEAT SHOP EVILS.
/Interesting Report of N.Y. Factory Inspectors.
As a side issue in the article, the last recommendation from the inspectors
said--<<That payment of wages by corporations be made in cash and that
company or "pluck-me" stores be abolished.>>
My DARE doesn't show "pluck me" stores? Any help here? One assumes the
meaning is the obvious.
