How much do you believe Henry Ford would have favoured unrestricted paid vacation?
Uncapped vacation days make me wonder what Henry Ford would think.
Although it is impossible to be certain, it is safe to presume Ford would have been opposed to such a system.
Workers wouldn't be able to take as much time off as they'd like under his perfect production system, after all.
Ford likely also believed that a vacation time cap would encourage him to work more.
He claimed that employees could have been inspired to work harder and deliver better outcomes if they had known they might accrue more vacation time.
Ford's emphasis on efficiency makes it doubtful that,
even if he had been amenable to the idea, he would have endorsed it.
