Download Faktor Freude: Wie die Wirtschaft Arbeitsgefühle erzeugt by Sabine Donauer PDF

By Sabine Donauer

Vom Discounter bis zur Großbank: Jeder activity verspricht heute Bestätigung weit über die Bezahlung hinaus. Die Aussicht auf Anerkennung und Selbstverwirklichung ersetzt oft genug gesicherte Arbeitsverhältnisse und muss Erschöpfungszustände kompensieren.

Die Historikerin Sabine Donauer weist nach, wie sich im 20. Jahrhundert unsere Haltung zur Arbeit verändert hat: Aus dem notwendigen Broterwerb wurde mehr und mehr eine innerlich motivierte und motivierende Beschäftigung. Diese Aufwertung der Arbeitsgefühle entspringt, wie Donauer nachweisen kann, einer geschickten Gefühlsarbeit der Unternehmen: Weil es ihnen im Laufe der letzten a hundred Jahre gelungen ist, die Arbeitnehmer emotional an ihre Arbeit zu binden, haben sie höhere Leistungen erreicht und Arbeitskämpfe weitgehend vermieden - ohne mehr bezahlen zu müssen. Jedoch zu einem hohen Preis, denn die Kehrseite dieses Individualismus ist die weitreichende Entsolidarisierung der Arbeitnehmer und ein übermächtiger Konkurrenzdruck.

Gibt es einen Ausweg aus dieser Wachstumsspirale von Leistung, Lust und Frust? Weniger ist mehr, wenn es uns gelingt, unsere Konsumkultur in eine Kultur des Zeitwohlstands zu verwandeln.
