The Worst Computer

We often say that computers do things better than people. But we have forgotten the computer that the Avon local government bought to help them to pay their workers.

The computer’s little adventure started in a small way, paying a school cleaner £75 an hour instead of 75 pence.

Then it decided not to pay a kitchen worker anything for seven weeks.

Soon it started to do bigger things and paid a door keeper £2,600 for a week’s work. He sent the money back and immediately got the same again.

By this time the computer was so sure of itself that nobody could stop it. A school teacher got a year’s pay every month; workers got more money than the boss; and the computer ordered some people to send more than a year’s pay to the government.

In February 1975, 280 local government workers met to talk about the problem. Only eight of them had the right pay. They all decided to stop work until the local government threw away the stupid computer.
