Workers as Personified hours.

Fuckin’ apt, innit:

“FULL-TIMERS — HALF-TIMERS — this way of describing workers who work full time and children who work only half time, which is not only used by the English manufacturers, but occurs officially in the FACTORY REPORTS, is much more characteristic of the factory system than the distinction between MASTERS and HANDS. Here the workers are purely and simply personified labour time, and the character of capitalist production emerges in its pure form. Age differences are reduced to full-timers and half-timers, 10 1/2 hours and 6 hours. The workers are merely personified hours.” mecw 33 491
