Seventy-five years ago today, Alabama's Bromberg & Co. hired 18-year-old Frances Moore to polish silver ahead of the holiday rush. This morning, the company hosted a breakfast for its most loyal employee, who never left, reports AP. "I didn't think I'd live 75 years let alone work for somebody 75 years," says the Birmingham resident, now 93. Along the way, she worked her way up to manage the company's extensive jewelry inventory before shifting into part-time status a few years ago. She's got no plans to stop, however. She's had a broken hip and knee surgery, "but I snapped back every time." (More uplifting news stories.)
