flexible work and flexibility: most of metal and car industry, as well
textile and food industry european workers, but also fast-food temporary
jobbers point like one of the biggest actual fraud of the patronat: in the
theory it is 7 hours x 5days= 35 hours, but in reality it is 6 days per week
x 10-12 hours, the toilet and break time not any more counted in the
work-time, the hours over 35 are not paid and the patronat has a right to
give a free day whenever it arrange them, but not a person concerned ;
flexibility in the various kind of jobs that one person has to effectuate;
in the factories the oldest worker don't accept the flexibility but the
young and illegal ones yes, which means that the young and illegal accept
nowadays all kind of miserable pays : in one word flexibility is a
disastrous capitulation and step back on XX century hardly obtained, basic
the topics about precarious work-
How can precarious workers organize?
- What answers there are to precariousness?
- How work has changed?
- How we can get rid of work?
are of corse welcome in the debate with the factory and manual workers who
how i see it, often paradoxaly don¹t have time to think about free time, or
about transformation of work/labour materiality . that is the reason also
that they are , generally, very hardly leaving their traditional
fixation towards the production tools even if those are completely
dilapidated. that¹s what some no more employed workers wont to point also
out , in our debate.
conclusion: definitely crossing of ( all type of) work and non-work
experiences are more than welcome in our¹s , but generally in all political
debates dealing with the work conditions nowadays.
ps.tapio are u personally coming to belgrade to joint the discussion?
