When hours should have been shortened and workers added As exploited by selfish capital the machine has decreased Cost per unit and Only increased profit and dial Jacobson ends. There is no solution to our machine age other than Shorter hours to create More jobs and a larger and More equal share of profits to increase buying Power. A solution also depends on How much private capital has Learned in the past and the elimination of the abusive use of this machine. To the masses How much More advantageous this same machine can be producing for use instead of piling wealth for the privileged few.
