How to get promoted

Marx thought that to be fulfilled, humans must feel a connection to the end result of their work. For example, a carpenter feels satisfaction when he finishes a chair or a table. But in an industrialized society people no longer feel this connection, which robs them of the fulfillment. He called this phenomenon”estranged labor“. One way to think about people who are attracted purely to wealth and status is that under these same conditions they don’t feel estranged. They’ve either eradicated this feeling in themselves long ago, or never felt it in the first place.”
