El Empleo – Working For the Man

My father always told me to never take anything personally in the workplace because when it really came down to it, all I would ever be to an employer was a commodity.

In this 2008 award winning short by Argentinian animator Santiago Grasso shows what life would be like when people become mere objects working for “The Man” – literally the commodities of which my father spoke.

A scary thought indeed.
