Paragraph #1

Henry Ford has affected many people both in life and death. From when he first started the Ford Motor Company he planned to make his company revolutionary. Ford was unique as a business owner as he employed people of all nationalities, race, and disabilities and even women. He payed all of his workers fairly at a shocking $5 dollars an hour, which was a huge amount of money, back then. Ford believed that as long as a person did the work and did it right that they should get the same rights as the next person. For example he paid people disability if they were injured and even adjusted their workspace to fit their needs. He cut their hours so they could spend more time with their families and invented what we call the weekend. All of these ideas he continued to use for the rest of his time working at Ford Motor Company and passed them on for generations to come.

This is a 1920 ad for the new Ford car. I included this because it shows how the ad is appealing not only to families but to men as well. This car was a car that men could use to get from work to home faster and easier and it was a luxuary item that they could show off around town.
