Automation Parable

The following appeared in Automation, a report to the UAW-CIO Economic and Collective Bargaining Conference in 1954:

CIO President Walter Reuther was being shown through the Ford Motor plant in Cleveland recently.
A company official proudly pointed to some new automatically controlled machines and asked Reuther: "How are you going to collect union dues from these guys?"
Reuther replied: "How are you going to get them to buy Fords?"
