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.
