She has been a UAW member since 1980 when she worked as a machinist in an aerospace plant. During that tenure, she worked on contract action committees and was the Chairperson of the Women's Committee. She was the main named plaintiff in a class action lawsuit on sexual discrimination, which ultimately won $1.5 million for the women workers at the plant.
Elaine Lantz was laid off from the aerospace plant in the early 1990's and became a bankruptcy paralegal before joining the NOLSW staff. She is active politically in many progressive causes.

Mother's Day for Joanna Stanford
2009 Mother's Day Greetings and Love to the multi-talented Joanna Stanford — now in hospice care — whose life has combined love of family with distribution of the People's Weekly World and predecessor papers, and with the struggle for a world of peace, justice, freedom, art, dance, dolls and handicrafts.
