You know how H.Ford paid his support engineers?

We are sure than only few of us know it. Could you tell?

Once, at one of Henry Ford’s factories, a work crew was paid for resting instead of working. This was a service crew which was responsible for the smooth, uninterrupted working of the factory’s assembly line. That is to say, they were maintenance staff. They got paid only for the time they spent in a room used for recreation. As soon as the red light in the room — which signalled a breakdown in the assembly line — lit up, the device that counted the money they earned stopped.
