(en) France, Alternative Libertaire Tract AL - RTT? Revolution of the Working Time! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 1 Apr 2016 18:12:18 +0300

Denounce the "work" law and the Medef-Valls government is not enough. In their logic, we must oppose another, radically reversed. They speak only of "boost growth" by increasing the flexibility and lengthening working hours. To reduce unemployment and redistribute wealth, it is exactly the opposite to do. Capitalism is out of breath, it's time to finish. ---- Working time ---- Social struggles fierce helped down from 60 to 40 hours per week. Then 39 hours before descending to 35 hours in exchange for the annualization and flexibility. The fight for the reduction of working time has also played on the retirement age and days of paid leave. ---- Success in following the setbacks of power between employers and workers- her, these laws have not changed fundamentally the relationship of exploitation: the bosses announce every time the "economic crisis" or "the decline of the country" and continue to make their profits on the wealth produced by labor.

Unemployment and technologies

all hair capitalist promise full employment by the return of growth. Forgetting that the capitalist mode of production and growth at all costs to take us straight to a major environmental disaster! And neglecting the amazing acceleration of technological progress.

Between intelligent robots and 3D printing, it announces the disappearance of half of current global jobs by 2025. And very little alternative employment.

Clearly, it will require less and less labor-its to produce wealth, but there will be fewer wage earners to buy them.

Capitalism, private property of means of production and "free competition" is thus faced with an absurd and insurmountable contradiction.

Wealth sharing and working time

If we can produce all the necessary goods, you just know how it distributes the working time required to produce and how to fairly distribute the goods produced.

For us, the answers are clear: it is necessary to pool the means of production and self-managing democratically businesses.

Reduction to 32 hours working time is a useful first claim to the mobilization but we can go much further in a society free from capitalism.

To strike to win

Neither the owners nor the shareholders will not allow themselves dispossessed without reacting. In the general strike process to break up austéritaires government policies, it is the expropriation of the bosses and restarting self-managed businesses we prepare.
