An Industry Epoch

"Changing the Works in Ford Employees to Five-Day Movements." The Labor Age, February 1927, p. 1.

"Nothing speaks more eloquently of the 'new era' facing the unorganized than the above cartoon, from the Automobile number of LIFE. Speed-up has reached the sublime state where it has become ridiculous. Humourous weeklies have to strain their imaginations but little to get a hearty laugh at the mechanical men produced by Ford, et al."
