On February 26, 1928, a headline in the New York Times announced, "MARCH OF THE MACHINE MAKES IDLE HANDS," with the subhead:"Prevalence of Unemployment With Greatly Increased Industrial Output Points to the Influence of Labor-Saving Devices as an Underlying Cause."

What these alarming words referred to was the abundance of goods being produced in the roaring plants, mills and farm fields of 1920s America.

"More and more the finger of suspicion points to the machine," the Times reporter, Evan Clark, claimed. "It begins to look as if machines had come into conflict with men—as if the onward march of machines into every corner of our industrial life had driven men out of the factory and into the ranks of the unemployed."
