Where I worked at, I could see the difference. It seemed to be, I don't know whether they got orders from their higher levels, or the fact that we were kind of militant, but this favoritism was not as open, and overtime work seemed to spread a little more evenly. There was favoritism going on, like there is a small degree even today, but it wasn't open and baised. Working conditions where I was working, they didn't change because we went to piece work, to efficiency method, and that efficiency method was such a conglomerate of operations that we never knew what we were making, and we finally got rid of that. I would say, where I worked at, you could see things easing up.
