Programming of Technical Changes and Manpower Adjustments

  • Solomon Barkin


Technical changes are producing the wholesale transformation of the workplace and jobs in industry. The machine is replacing human and intellectual skills. The worker on the production job is being converted from a manual or clerical employee into a machineminder. Conceptual skills and powers of orientation are becoming more and more important as they replace manual skills. The maintenance worker is assuming relatively greater importance as are the technical and professional employees entering industry in vast numbers. The factors determining the location of the newer industries are often quite different from those which governed that of the older ones. The geography of industry is therefore changing.
