2-Paragraphs/ The Ford Motor Company

 

        

 

The ‘Big Idea” of America is to create the modern consumer society. The carmaker Henry Ford brought the idea of mass production, the rapid manufacture of large numbers of identical products to the automobile industry. In 1908, the Model T car was introduced. 1919 came with 10% of American families owned a car. In 1917, 57% American families owned a car as well. Indeed in 1914, the company raised workers wages from $2.35 to $5 a day. Henry reduced their workday from 9 to 8 hours a day. Some years later in 1926, the first industrialist was to offer the worker Saturday and Sunday off. Numerous of workers had money to spend and receive more time off (which is leisure time). The United States industry and the economy had multiples of changes. Boom in the Automobile industry stimulated the growth in other industries. Steel, glass, rubber, asphalt, wood, gasoline, insurance, and road construction industries all had benefited.

 

 

 

 

Other forms of transportation suffered. Meanwhile in 1926, the Federal Government introduced the system of federal highways. Cars led to the rapid creation of service stations, diners, and motor hotels. The Ford cars created freedom. A vacation, for the people and the citizens was able to see the suburbs for the society. In the present, the Ford Company persisted with the money of a celebrity. The model cars now are obtaining better every year. There’s upgrades each year so everything is “High-Tech.” My prediction is that in every year a car gets made, there is something new within the car. The cars are changing the point of views in the society. In the year of 1920, many families owned a car. That’s something that is exceedingly popular in the U.S. Moving transportation was the most popular thing in backthen’s civilization. These cars influenced legions of people to buy them. The Ford Motor Companies idea made mankind joyful because they can travel much more, much faster, and on time.
