Abstract
The impact of new technologies on job pressure in the telephone industry is discussed in a presentation to the 1981 International Conference on Machine Pacing and Occupational Stress. Technological change and its jobs within the telephone industry is discussed. The occupational effects of new technologies such as job elimination, new skill requirements, increased interaction with computers, and job induced stress are described. The author concludes that job induced psychological stress often results from over supervision, work speed ups, fear of job loss, and lack of decision making within one's job.
