After reading the passage A Six-Hour Workday Is Plenty, I'd have to agree with Henry Ford's change, considering the fact that not only did his employee's work 11-12 hours a day, 6 days a week Henry Ford had also doubled the workers pay. Not only did it benefit Henry Ford and his employee's their company had a huge increase in productivity. I from personal experience have worked 6 days a week, 8-9 hours in sells. I would make sure customers left happy with their product, paid a good price and if they ever had an issue with their product i'd try my best to help them out any way i could whether if they wanted a refund or an exchange.
