'Lucky to Have a Job'

I'm hearing this phrase punted around a lot, usually by bosses. Which is nonsense, a job is a right - not necessarily the job you want, but the opportunity to work and have a decent standard of living.

Yes, I understand bosses want us to feel 'lucky', but that has no bearing on the ideal state of a society - only their ideal state.

I so agree with you. Precarity is a weapon.
