27 January - Punch the Clock Day
A punch clock is a timekeeping device which is used to record data about when employees arrive at and leave work. The data from a punch clock is utilized during payroll to determine how much each employee should be paid.
Following the invention of the time clock in 1888, an industrialist, Willard Le Grand Bundy, invented a clock where employees could punch in and punch out the hours they worked. An employee would punch their card into the clock, with their exact work hours logged onto it.
In 1889, a Willard began manufacturing time clocks based on his own invention and patent. These simple manual punch clocks were the first ever made, and by 1898 the company had sold more than 9,000 time recorders.
