    Background: Thanks to the introduction of automatic production lines, the Frezer Works in Moscow, USSR, can now offer its employees a 7-hour working day, 1 hour less per day then previously, Eight automatic production lines have greatly increased the factory's productivity and thus enable production to be maintained, although less hours are worked each shift.

    On one of the new installations, two men control a row of twenty machines, where formerly there was one man at each machine tool.

    Workers thus have more time for family life, recreation or study, and can look forward to even shorter hours of work with the next step forward into the age of automation.
