Deaths by Work Overload in a Profit-Driven World
Karoshi is the term used for death due to work overload in Japan. Mazda amongst other industries/companies have been held accountable for these type of crimes against life having to pay up to 750 thousand dollars to the family of one of their workers that commit suicide in 2007 due to the stress and depression he endured which aggravated by the time he had to extend his work schedule – the company was found guilty for not having taken care of the worker’s mental and physical health.
Another case karoshi happened in the same country in 2010 where a restaurant franchise had to pay 880 000 dollars to the family of an employee that died due to a heart attack after having an average of 112 EXTRA hours of monthly work –
February 2009: agricultural corporation had to pay almost 1 million dollars for the death of a 33 year old man that commit suicide due to work overload.
These are but a few documented deaths by work overload which isn’t only about ‘working too much’ and having physical repercussions as a result of the strain as physically and mentally demanding situations.
This is linked to the current Capitalist System that ‘puts a gun on everyone’s forehead’ to work under pressure to The moment a production line is tracked to make the most money every single second means that people working under this type of stress will eventually be NOT living, but merely surviving and ‘hanging on’ to these type of working conditions which is definitely limiting and
it is completely unacceptable to be existing in a world where money is ‘worth more’ than humans’ living conditions
which are currently being held with a constant noose around their neck with no possibility of changing their living conditions as ALL jobs in this world are existent within the same system that is measured by Profit, by Greed and ultimately by harsh competition that will push the envelope as far as it can just to become a ‘great business’.
These are Not really ‘News’ though, have we actually taken a look at how it is that Life is being sold to enslaving jobs and badly paid labor just for the sake of MONEY as Profit? What is wrong with ourselves that have accepted and allowed this to be ‘the way the world works’?
Here in México City there is people that embark themselves on a daily basis on a 2 to 3 hour ride just to get to work to earn the minimum wage wherein at the end of the day – after a long and hard working time in a shitty job – have to endure the traffic jam at night to get to their home that is usually located in suburban areas with little or no proper security at all.
These people have to sustain families, kids in school, place food on the table, pay living services and transportation. Not to mention the occasional entertainment required for such a straining living condition.
This MUST Stop
it is disheartening to see people’s faces in transportation every single day after a long day at work in life sucking business and factories that are part of what we’ve become as this entire system thus, we are saying:
we have created this in our image and likeness, we have to become the point of solution and that can only be through
Equalizing the living conditions with Equal Money for ALL to Dignify each person’s living condition, to no longer enslave ourselves to a life-consuming system that is NOT regarding Life as a Value that must be given to ALL unconditionally.
We are HERE to place an overall solution – Support yourself to see the common sense required in this world. Re-Educate yourself to see this world in Self Honesty to consider there IS another way things can be done.
