“The $5 Day” On January 5, 1914 Henry Ford announced he was paying $5 for eight hours of work a day in his factory. This change attracted thousands of unskilled workers looking for work. This also sparked many other factories to increase their wages or move their factory out of the city.

(Casey) Ford's plan attracted a variety of responses. Workers viewed him as a friend, while many businessmen viewed his ideas as reckless. Ford disregarded criticism because he knew how important his employees were. He believed that retaining more employees
