Working at S/A during WW2

Gentlemen,
When do you think that S/A reach it's highest employment during its production of the M1 Garand during WW2 ?

Thanks again
Clancy

Early to mid 43 as new machines and techniques were developed that allowed fewer workers.

Gentlemen,
May 1, 1943 shows the top number of people working at SA. Just after that date people are leaving SA. I hope this data helps.
Thanks again

Me too!
I had to make a pretty broad guess to do it though.
