Once upon a time : the wage earning

A film by Anne Kunvari

From 1906 with today, the film tells hundred years of history of wage-earning. These hundred years saw the birth of labour protective rights, the social security, the retirement, the paid-leaves, the contract at unspecified duration...Modern wage-earning was built through economic and political combat and transformations.

But for thirty years, this protective statute has been called into question. Unemployment of mass, flexibility, precariousness, social protections in danger: the universe of the employees is upset. Is after the time of the projections, already the time of the retreats ?
