eliminating or lessening physical labor: labor-saving appliances
(comparative more laborsaving, superlative most laborsaving)
- Making work easier or faster.
- The proliferation of laborsaving devices has not given us more leisure time, paradoxically.
- In the early 1900s, many of these conveniences were unheard of, and even the staff of the St. Regis got the luxury treatment - the hotel's maids were among the first to use labor-saving vacuum cleaners.
- Today, we also depend on modern, labor-saving devices like the washer and dryer to save us time.
