An examination of value placements that hand car washes in Montreal have with manual and automated labour. The communities around these Lave Auto à la Main establishments value the automated transportation of motor vehicles over the manual labour of other modes of transportation like walking or riding a bicycle. They do however value the slower and more meticulous process of manually washing cars over the more efficient process of automated car washing. In this interpretation, the name, Lave Auto à la Main, has been reimagined as a motto or manifesto and turned into a flag to represent a community with these very specific values for manual and automated labour.
