Debates on the centrality of work

"Quand le management se fait Dibbouk"

by Linhart, Danièle (2012)


Beside seduction and control, managers aim at developing a process that render workers fragile and unable to impose their own conception of work as well as their own values, while in fact autonomy becomes more and more a necessity. A subjective precariousness, through permanent change, attacks of professions and crafts, and systematic mobilities is being implemented, so as to dispossess workers from their individual and collective experience and manage them as “free” agents under control.
