(en) Canada, ucl-saguenay, Collectif Emma Goldman - Publisacs: Town halls of Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean defending bullshit jobs (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 2 Dec 2019 09:38:02 +0200

While the city of Mirabel was the first to prohibit the systematic distribution of Publisac (owned by TC Transcontinental) for environmental reasons last September, the town halls of Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean have been defending these days in the defense. forest industry by signaling the threat of job losses in the region. A regional political power subservient to multinationals established there or a cry of the heart for the defense of bullshit jobs, know the motivations that animate them ... ---- Resolute forest products, whose plants Kenogami, Dolbeau and Alma, could be touched of course rejoice in these supports. While paper tends to disappear in all other sectors, the mayor Josée Néron, of Saguenay, tries to make us believe that publicisacs are ecological. "The paper that is used to print flyers and other documents in the Publisac is made from wood chips. Should we do as before and just burn the chips instead of using them as we do now? ", She argues to defend the unscrupulous multinational[1]. It is to believe that there would be no alternative in the use of wood chips or recycled plastic, at least for the multinational that she supports so zealously.

But a moment! Is it serious to wish to maintain such jobs whose production is useless and cumbersome (the famous "bullshit jobs")? Their production would disappear that society would have absolutely no impact, if not positive environmental impacts. Economist John Maynard Keynes, who predicted in the 1930s that technological advances would reduce working time to 15 hours per week before the end of the 20th century, must be turned in his grave. Great fortunes have only stuck the jackpot and always ask for more.
