Working a machine.

Working at a typewriter is much easier in the digital world. Plastic keys provide a fine spring. This is not a lot of work. Pushing a machine has become the isolating factor in modern society. From tractors to drones, throughout manufacturing and service sector, everybody earns their daily labor respite by punching away time in the enslavement of the baser elements, from hard iron up through silicone. Air hammer, rivet punch, countdown timer and Zamboni. I get paid to shift around electrons, putting them in neat little stacks that translate into a printable "object" capable of being dispatched electromechanically through the open air to receivers thousands of miles away at the institution of my employ.
