It was usually activated by inserting a time card into it and either manually stamping the time onto it, or later activating a switch which caused the stamp to enter the time onto the card. Obviously you never worked in a factory or in a hospital or...etc. SETH SKLAREY >I just heard, in the lyrics to a song >by the Tractors, the expression "time clock." > >Is this a common expression?
