Documenting and giving content to the presentation to prepare for forum, Manage your life on the crisis, I find this joke:
A man in search of work tells the chief of staff:
“I came to fill the position of the gentleman who had just drowned.
“Sorry, you arrive late, and we gave that pushed him.
The precarious and unhealthy competition for jobs has gone from being a temporary situation to a lifestyle. I say this without bitterness or disappointment, only descriptive effort.
The pervasiveness and strength of this model has long been mitigated negative emotions and has taken us from the frustration that produces unjust to the chronic acceptance that this is and will be things that most people’s wages will not improve many efforts and make their jobs if they do, tend to be more routine, dedicated and stressful day.
Of course, some consultants, managers and well-meaning politicians will insist on selling the dream of globalization and some others like the “knowledge society”, idealization that for much of the population is reduced to using their digital certificate to access your bank account and see how it varies the amount of your mortgage, and follow the GPS compulsively to the places where you can use with your credit card comfort. If you think one is turning out an article pessimistic, I will kindly remind you that pessimism is something else, right?
The danger of this continuing precariousness is not unexpectedly has been installed, like you do not want the thing, but that has made us think that this way of living is virtually the only possible one. One day you wake up and discover that your degree does not reach you to get the life you thought, but maybe you can not deny that you also have some responsibility in this fiasco.
We are told that if we accept these wages will stay low prices, that if we work more hours, the economy will improve, that good people always get their recognition, and continually recycling and doing courses to improve in our employment, not to lose or to find .
Much of these thoughts I wrote in March 2008, when the crisis is already evident. But for many more years of living in this “new” work culture direct responsibility of a few, those above, but also indirectly by the indolence of many others, those at the bottom.
Manage your life on the crisis might well have been entitled to manage the crisis in your life, because many people who have lost their jobs in recent months will have to face their future in a completely different way. And many people keep their jobs, temporarily at least, should assume that the only way to live beyond the instability is to be better, more tenacious, more skilled and more versatile than others.
