Catalogue Entry

The Cash Register is an iconic relic that reflects the commodification of Chinese labour during the early to mid-twentieth century. Chinese laundry, tailors, grocers and restaraunts were the main businesses endeavors owned and operated by Chinese Canadians. The Cash Register is a symbol that brings to light the relentless labour that occupied each work day - 7 days a week, 15 hours a day.


收銀機是一個標誌性的文物,反映了二十世紀中葉中國勞動力的商品化。華人洗衣店、裁縫店、雜貨店和餐館是加拿大華人擁有和經營的主要業務。收銀機是一個象徵,它揭示了每個華人工人每週 7 天,每天 15 小時都需要工作的無理。
