I think when people were actually working by hand, you couldn't sell them crap. That probably stopped for the most part in NA, about 50 years ago. I remember seeing a picture of a guy working on the modernist Toronto City hall (flying saucer between towers like a split toilet roll), and he was sawing with a handsaw. Must have been a union thing.
