“The market-oriented person” is a movie about the work life. When people “become goods”, their human dignity is lost. Twenty years ago in Germany almost two thirds of the employees were in a full-time job with a social security insurance. Nowadays this number is down to 38%. The film deals with the development of jobs towards burnout – and with the alternative. Companies that operate according to the principle of the common good, workers in supply services who set up a works council and the strength of solidarity among young people who advocate a system change are presented. “The market-driven person” is a film that questions the situation, that wants to encourage people to get involved and join forces. The movie is shown at Universum movie theatre, tickets cost about 8 €. Further information here.
