Blake Fall-Conroy - Minimum Wage Machine

  • 12 December 2013 - 9 March 2014

Minimum Wage Machine by Blake Fall-Conroy allows anybody to work for minimum wage by fulfilling a simple, manual task. Turning the crank will yield one penny every 0.17 seconds, or £6.31 an hour (UK minimum wage), sparking discussion about the value of labour, the nature of minimum wage and capitalism as a whole.
