Featherbedding is it real or is it fantasy TERM FEATHERBED ding was originated more than half a century ago but it didnt come into common use until recent times While it is difficult of precise definition it means using more manpow er than is required to do a giv en job While there are probably other versions about how it came into being the one most widely accepted is that it re sulted from a complaint by Rock Island railroaders about their corncobfilled caboose mattresses a half century ago What do you want feather beds their trainmaster is supposed to have responded in chiding tones

to convict or acquit anybody I have a good story to tell and I hope I can be objective in the telling SINCE THE BEGINNING of our machine age there has been a haunting fear that each new laborsaving
