Covid-19 at work: the great upheaval

Chronicle by Laurent Quintreau

Summary

As if it were not enough to upend the daily lives of millions of workers throughout the world, Covid-19 now seeks to shake up certain foundational aspects of society. With the confinement, the State is reconnecting with its protective power. The least-regarded and most poorly-paid sectors become “vital” activities, whereas professions offering high added value become, for the most part, “non-essential”. As for the massive and widespread use of telecommuting, it has brought the outside in (and vice-versa), generating millions of gigabytes of flow acceleration while subjecting bodies to long periods of immobility. A disruption that has turned our values, gestures and customs upside-down, reminiscent of the great upheaval held so dearly by alchemists and occultists.
