Are employment records the answer?

Do you have ancestors for whom employment records might answer some questions, or at least provide you with some information you were not already aware of?

Rural ancestors rarely have these records but those with urban ancestors might want to see if records of their ancestor's former employers have been archived or stored somewhere.

Personally I haven't used employment records too much, but am working on a set of records for an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues.
