From the Paper:

"The average American today works more than an American worker of even a generation ago. A 1999 Government report stated that workers worked 8% more hours than the previous generation. This translates to an average workweek of 47 hours. Twenty percent of workers today work more than 49 hours. The work place has been constantly changing the revolution from agronomies to industrialization having had its origins in the Industrial Revolution. Consequently, most of the industrialized regions of the world attained better standards with significant improvements in quality of life. In turn, however, the workplace became more formal and restrictive. Personal skills of an individual were generally ignored. These abilities were not considered essential to the worker's role in the "new" work environment.

Mass production was the next phase of change in the workplace. It made standardization the norm. Greater emphasis was placed on conformity to acceptable standards and rules than to the workers? actual skill. America has always been the land of dreams."
