Focuses on the problem of production faced by businessmen in the U.S. due to the increased tendency of wage earners to stay away from their job. Recommendation made by the U.S. government that men who will not work will be forced to fight; Assumption that men and women who do not come to work stay away either because of pure laziness, or because they do not understand the importance of top speed in output; Failure of the U.S. government to provide defense workers with adequate living quarters and modern facilities; Investigations made by American engineers on the causes of waste in American industry, when the country was inflamed with anti-labor propaganda against union working rules.
