Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This paper examines the causes of the opposition towards a proposal given to the workers in the Danish slaughterhouse firm DC to invest some of their wages in an investment fund to sustain their workplaces. The empirical knowledge of the examination is qualitative and consists of a focus group interview with slaughterhouse workers, short observations at their workplace and a resource interview with representatives from their labour union. With a critical theoretical vantage point focusing on the conflictual character of work in a capitalist economy, a theoretical, thematic analysis is conducted with concepts from Oskar Negt and Alexander Kluges work on the public and experience. The paper identifies a number of causes for the slaughterhouse workers’ scepticism, where the concrete mediation and the technical details of the proposition as well as a workplace with no potential to form public spaces left a lot of room for interpretation to the tayloristic character of their work and their prior experiences with DC. However, a progressive potential is proposed to exist in form of an orientation towards the labour union.
