Btw. can you or someone explain "punching the clock and working for
the man"? Is it an idiom?

"Punching the clock", refers to the automated clocking-in and
clocking-out process, some work places have. Each worker has their
own named card, and you put this card in the clock slot at the
beginning and end of each shift and the clock "punches" your card
with a time, date stamp.

"Working for the man" ... maybe this can be thought of as "Working
for the cybernetic machine" ... although it is usually a man relaying
the orders.

Thanks, Adam!
