Od preveč dela se umira

Tehtno branje, primerno za čas pred prazniki: o tem, zakaj je zahteva po skrajšanju delovnega časa legitimna delavska zahteva, zakaj bi morala biti v središču delovanja današnjih sindikatov in kako jo misliti v času, ko narašča število nestabilnih, prekarnih zaposlitev, pri katerih je meja med delovnim in prostim časom čedalje bolj zabrisana.

Free time, as IG Metall argues, is essential for basic dignity; to care for ourselves and our communities, we need time away from generating profit for employers. Just as importantly, we need it to realize our human potential. Our ability to think independently, experience romance, nurture friendships, and pursue our own curiosities and passions requires time that is ours, time that belongs neither to the boss nor the market. At its core, the campaign for fewer working hours is about liberation, both individually and collectively.
