Bullshit Jobs

Author: David Graeber
Publisher: Klett-Cotta
ISBN: 9783608115062
Release Date: 2018-08-30
Genre: Political Science

Ein Bullshit-Job ist eine Beschäftigungsform, die so völlig sinnlos, unnötig oder schädlich ist, dass selbst der Arbeitnehmer ihre Existenz nicht rechtfertigen kann. Es geht also gerade nicht um Jobs, die niemand machen will, sondern um solche, die eigentlich niemand braucht. Im Zuge des technischen Fortschritts sind zahlreiche Arbeitsplätze durch Maschinen ersetzt worden. Trotzdem ist die durchschnittliche Arbeitszeit nicht etwa gesunken, sondern auf durchschnittlich 41,5 Wochenstunden gestiegen. Wie konnte es dazu kommen? David Graeber zeigt in seinem bahnbrechenden neuen Buch, warum immer mehr überflüssige Jobs entstehen und welche verheerenden Konsequenzen diese Entwicklung für unsere Gesellschaft hat. Im Jahr 1930 sagte der britische Ökonom John Maynard Keynes voraus, dass durch den technischen Fortschritt heute niemand mehr als 15 Stunden pro Woche arbeiten müsse. Fast ein Jahrhundert danach stellt David Graeber fest, dass die Gegenwart anders aussieht: Die durchschnittliche Arbeitszeit ist gestiegen und immer mehr Menschen üben Tätigkeiten aus, die unproduktiv und daher eigentlich überflüssig sind – als Immobilienmakler, Investmentbanker oder Unternehmensberater. Es sind Jobs, die keinen sinnvollen gesellschaftlichen Beitrag leisten. Es sind Bullshit-Jobs. Warum bezahlt eine Ökonomie solche Tätigkeiten, die sie nicht braucht? Wie ist es zu dieser Entwicklung gekommen? Und was können wir dagegen tun? David Graeber, einer der radikalsten politischen Denker unserer Zeit, geht diesem Phänomen auf den Grund. Ein packendes Plädoyer gegen die Ausweitung sinnloser Arbeit, die die moralischen Grundfesten unserer Gesellschaft ins Wanken bringt.

"Überzeugend und mit bissigem Witz. Das ist Unterhaltung auf höchstem Niveau." The Sunday Times Als Harvard-Absolvent David Zinc Partner bei einer der angesehensten Großkanzleien Chicagos wird, scheint seiner Karriere nichts mehr im Weg zu stehen. Doch der Job erweist sich als die Hölle. Fünf Jahre später zieht David die Reißleine und kündigt. Stattdessen heuert er bei Finley & Figg an, einer auf Verkehrsunfälle spezialisierten Vorstadt-Kanzlei, deren chaotische Partner zunächst nicht wissen, was sie mit ihm anfangen sollen. Bis die Kanzlei ihren ersten großen Fall an Land zieht. Der Prozess könnte Millionen einspielen – die Feuertaufe für David. Als Anwalt bei Rogan Rothberg, einer der renommiertesten Kanzleien im Großraum Chicagos, hat man ausgesorgt. Jeder Jurist würde seine rechte Hand für diesen Job geben. David Zinc ist seit fünf Jahren dabei. Fünf harte Jahre, in denen er sechs Tage die Woche von morgens sieben bis abends zehn arbeitet. Dann schmeißt er hin und bewirbt sich bei Finley & Figg, einem windigen Zweimannbetrieb, der seine Fixkosten mit Verkehrsunfällen und ähnlichen Kleinstdelikten deckt. Doch was Davids neuen Arbeitgebern an Prestige fehlt, machen sie an Einfallsreichtum wett. Kaum ein Winkelzug, den sie nicht geschickt für sich verwenden, kaum ein Paragraph, den sie nicht auszuschlachten wüssten. David kommt aus dem Staunen nicht heraus, bis Wally Figg einen Fall aufspürt, der die große Wende für die kleine Kanzlei bedeuten könnte: die Klage gegen einen Pharmakonzern, der ein Medikament trotz möglicherweise tödlicher Nebenwirkungen nicht vom Markt nehmen will. Die Partner versprechen ihren Klienten das große Geld, und auch David lässt sich von der Begeisterung anstecken, bis er erkennt, dass Finley & Figg jede Kompetenz für einen Prozess dieser Größenordnung fehlt.
