Sascha Lobo once coined the lifestyle of a whole generation with his book "We Call It Work": Digital Boheme wanted to work freely and independently. Last week, Lobo indirectly explained the failure of this idea. Sascha Lobo's Change of Mind: The End of New Work and Digital Bohemia? Lobo5

I took my shoes off

Overview

The interview, which Lobo last week in the Frankfurter Rundschau , was actually about a completely different theme:

The so-called platform capitalism of services such as Uber or Airbnb, commonly referred to as the sharing economy. But then it just took off my shoes ...

The Arschlöcher from the Silicon Valley

Overview

He attested to the ladies and gentlemen from the Silicon Valley, like the British weekly "The Economist", a true-to-the-asshole problem:

Much of the disruptive power that could advance society is that of others Company into the evil and the destructive. There is a relentlessness and arrogance that is very, very harmful.

Social security also for the self-employed

Overview

So far, so beautiful. However, the really interesting thing about this article Lobo says elsewhere - and more indirectly:

For example, he calls for social protection systems to be extended to the self-employed: A minimum wage for the self-employed is conceivable. I can also imagine a certain basic set of social protection for the self-employed, which would then have to be partly covered by the clients.

Old idea in a new guise

Overview

Now this idea is really old hat. The union Verdi, for example, has been calling for it for years. In the context of unfortunately limited to some occupational social insurance artist this principle has even been realized.

Unfortunately, our bureaucracy does not seem to be designed to control which clients have self-employed. For tax or social security there are larger companies, preferably with many employees, and there are employees. With everything in between, the bureaucracy has problems, as you can tell by the concept of the pseudo-self.

Lobo's change of meaning

Overview

It is not without some irony that now Sascha Lobo as the inventor of the digital bohemia now demands its protection - and that, after we have been vigorously against who have petitioned Leyens compulsory pension plans for the self-employed.

Because with his idea of ​​self-determined work, Lobo - perhaps involuntarily - has paved the way for self-exploitation among the young self-employed perhaps even to be considered "chic". And now he calls, by the way, like the banks in the financial crisis, to the state.

From self-liberation to self-exploitation

Overview

The difference is explained by Lobo in the interview itself, thus revealing the dangers of his own Boheme idea.

I as an employee must be able to choose this flexibility. 30 hours working within 48 hours can be an interesting experience. It sounds for me however rather according to the 19. Century, the late Manchester capitalism. This is not the way in which one wants to live his life on a regular basis, and that is, I would think, no matter what work you have. To this extent, flexibilisation is initially a good thing, but it is a great threat to misuse workers as a shifting mass.

To this extent, the idea of ​​digital self-determination was perhaps a bit naive and I congratulate Mr Lobo that he has now arrived in reality.
