Context

“It is evident that in this atmosphere the formation of surplus-value by surplus labour, is no secret. «If you allow me,» said a highly respectable master to me, «to work only ten minutes in the day over-time, you put one thousand a year in my pocket.» 28 «Moments are the elements of profit.» 29
Nothing is from this point of view more characteristic than the designation of the workers who work full time as «full-timers,» and the children under 13 who are only allowed to work 6 hours as «half-timers.»” source
