  43. 43. Workers are photographed on a flywheel assembly line at the Ford Motor Company's Highland Park, Mi., plant in 1913. The use of a moving line reduced a car's assembly time from 12 hours to 93 minutes. The world's first automatic conveyor belt escalated the Industrial Age inspiring Henry Ford toward an unprecedented $5 per day minimum wage and an eight-hour day when auto industry workers were making $2.34 for a nine-hour shift. Faster assemblage meant quicker availability, giving impetus to America's car culture and an ever-increasing mobile society. (AP Photo/Ford Motor Company)
