I’ve always loved this old war propaganda poster trying to get women out into the workforce while their men were out on the battlefields. It makes me giggle.

Who was Henry Ford? Wikipedia notes, “he was the American founder of the Ford Motor Company and father of modern assembly lines used in mass production. His introduction of the Model T automobile revolutionized transportation and American industry. He was a prolific inventor and was awarded 161 U.S. patents. As owner of the Ford Motor Company he became one of the richest and best-known people in the world. He is credited with “Fordism“, that is, the mass production of large numbers of inexpensive automobiles using the assembly line, coupled with high wages for his workers. Ford had a global vision, with consumerism as the key to peace. Ford did not believe in accountants; he amassed one of the world’s largest fortunes without ever having his company audited under his administration. Henry Ford’s intense commitment to lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations, including a franchise system that put a dealership in every city in North America, and in major cities on six continents. Ford left most of his vast wealth to the Ford Foundation but arranged for his family to control the company permanently.”

I am very impressed with what he was able to accomplish in a short period of time. He would not have been able to do this without the help of the team which is why he payed them admirably. I liken this to the world of the film industry except I’m not sure our wages have yet met our contributions but I digress. No film can be made without the team and I hope every above the line person realizes this next time they’re on set. No matter how successful Henry Ford became he never forgot the little guy.
