Propaganda film for good working conditions. The working conditions of two sewing workshops are compared: cloakroom (large or too small); working space (people packed together with minimal lighting or enough space and good lighting); food (at the working space or a large canteen with a cafetaria system).

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
