Taylorism and the Transformation of Work, 1880s – 1910s Instilling a New Work Ethic, 1820-1910 Frederick W Talor and Taylorism Taylorism in Politics Early 19 th Century 1860 -> American Manufactours did not have the power to instill a regular work ethic. Drawing from the ranks of artisans and farm women. They were used to working hard but not at a steady schedule and a steady pace. Farmers work really hard when a task is there and then when it is done, they would relax. Artisans also worked for the demand of the task so if there were no demand for your item, there was time for leisure. They were their own boss so they can control what hours they worked. Artisans and Farmers did not make the distinction between work and leisure. 1820 -> Drunk on the job. And the pace of work is slower. Students experience their work lives the same. (work on task and then take it easy) we don't work for a rigid schedule This is the original perspective of work in the early 19 th century. It was hard to adjust to the fast pace of industrialization which required them to work at a steady pace. It was hard to instill a work ethic because of this.
