Through 12 international profiles selected according to their activity and embodying current issues, Humans at Work examines the professional world today and explores questions related to the changing nature of work and its consequences in the future.
In a society that is going through an economic, social and climatic crisis, certain sectors of activity are destined to undergo major changes. In this context, does the precariat (contraction of precariousness and proletariat) embody the emergence of a new social class? Are the unskilled workers likely to disappear? What reality will the working immigrant population face? Is higher education still the surest way to ensure a happy future as a worker?
Faced with an uncertain future, this film goes to meet our workers and questions the solutions to best envision this future that is more frightening than ever.
