What if we had access to unlimited paid time off? What would Henry Ford think?
What would Henry Ford have thought of having an endless supply of paid time off?
Ford might not have supported such a system, although it's difficult to determine.
After all, he would have no intention of implementing a policy that allows employees to take an endless amount of time off the job in his vision of a faster-paced and more effective production system.
Ford most certainly saw the restrictions on paid time off as a motivation to work more.
According to him, the chance to earn more vacation days may have motivated workers to exert more effort and work harder to earn them.
Whatever the case, it's obvious that Ford put efficiency above all else,
so it's unlikely that he would have backed any idea of providing unlimited paid time off.
