Overview

"Automation has been used against the worker . . . there are going to be hard feelings, hard times, until everyone sits down and tries to work out something that's human."
Typographer

This collection contains transcribed interviews with more than 125 workers and managers in Connecticut whose lives were affected by changes brought about by new machinery and production methods. An `oral archive' now available on microfiche, these first hand accounts reveal human reactions not just to technology but to other contemporary issues such as labour relations, job satisfaction and redundancy.
