Does the history of TIME interest you?

The Clock Museum in Columbia, Pennsylvania recently debuted their new exhibit:  — “On the Clock: Changing the Industrialized World.”

What will you see?
  • - How clocks and keeping track of time has evolved
  • -How time recorders have changed
  • -Our lives have evolved with time keeping 
  • -Time cards and historical time keeping
  • -Punch clocks and time sheets for employers and employees

Hurry, this time exhibit will run out of time! They are only featuring this special exhibit until the end of this year.
 Beginning in the late 19th century, the National Labor Relations Act protected the rights of employees and employers, and the Fair Labor Standards Act outlined minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping and youth employment standards. The “On the Clock: Changing the Industrialized World” exhibit highlights the first time-recording companies, outlines the typical workday in the 19th century and touches on what possibilities the future workday may hold.
“Having a job is an integral part of survival in the modern era,” says museum curator Kim Jovinelli, pointing out that the exhibit is not only a look back at history, but also an examination of the present and, potentially, the future.
The E. G. Watkins Family Foundation sponsors “On the Clock.” Edward Watkins was the man who invented the time clock. The National Watch and Clock Museum is operated by the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, Inc. (NAWCC), a nonprofit association with more than 14,000 members in 52 countries.
