The Future of Labour: Trapped In A Neo-Liberal Veal Pen

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 11:46

File under: we are all serfs/eventual anarchists:

Consulting firm PwC recently published its outlook for work in 2022, based on interviews with 500 human resources experts and 10,000 others in the United States and several other countries. You probably won’t be surprised to hear that big companies could end up so powerful and influential they morph into “ministates” that fill the void when government is unable to provide essential services. Companies will also use sensors and other gizmos to monitor employees around the clock. And workers will mostly acquiesce to this digital leash, in exchange for job security, decent pay and important benefits.

The future’s so bright, I gotta drink whiskey like it’s going outta style.

This makes the hashtag #IfTheyGunnedMeDown so powerful. It's sad that some people have taken it to another level. http://t.co/oZnLDRRDhN

WELP:

WHITE SUSPECT

suspect 1

That’s how the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal chose to present the story of Amy Bishop, a former college professor who eventually pleaded guilty to killing three colleagues and wounding three others at a faculty meeting in 2010.

BLACK VICTIM

victim 7

And that’s the headline AL.com ran about the shooting death of a 25-year-old black man in Alabama earlier this year.

WHITE SUSPECT

suspect 2

This is how the Staten Island Advance covered the case of Eric Bellucci, a mentally ill New York man who allegedly killed his parents.

BLACK VICTIM

trayvon

Meanwhile, NBC News ran this headline during ongoing coverage of the Trayvon Martin killing.
