Alienation also results from what happens on the job as most employees are told what work to do and how to do it.
Workers usually have little say in how their skill rare used in their plants and offices or in how their jobs are designed.
Managers make the big decisions, set the company goals, plan the process and decide who does what…Here again workers lack power and control.
This may be an efficient way of doing things but Marx finds it unsatisfying as who wants to spend their work lives doing nothing but what as people tell them to do?
Under these circumstances work is nothing like what Marx thinks it should be…The worker is forced to be passive, unthinking and complaint when he or she would be happier being active, engaged and creative.
The work process thus cuts against of what humans beings wants and do.
But on the contrary I just want t state that with the arrive of our digital age and with the arrive of our current technology patterns that we are currently living…Work doesn’t have to be this way.
As today many people can choose the option of entrepreneurship were if they are solo workers that would be good to them…If they choose to hire someone to help they can enable and empower those helpers to be involved more into their actual project and business were alienation from the process don’t seem to happen.
Technology gives both the owner and the worker or I might call him/her now the helper a more powerful position in controlling of their jobs at the specific entrepreneurship project or business they happen to be involved with.
