The endless duration of this employment is feasible because money pays better than work. As long as we live in a society where the return on capital is substantially higher than the average increase in wages, Eternal Employment is kept afloat. [...] Eternal Employment is realized through long-term strategic investment of the allocated production budget. To facilitate employment and capital management over time, a foundation is set up specifically for this purpose.
Eternal Employment is proposing employment without labour. Work without duties, responsibilities or projected outcomes. [...] The employee may come to suffer from severe “boreout” (stress caused by understimulation), may invent his/her own projects or creative ventures, or may simply embrace a state of perpetual leisure.
As such, Eternal Employment not only offers a different understanding of work and the worker, but questions the very notions of growth, productivity and progress which are at the core of modernity. [...] What remains in an employment without productivity is time. In this sense we can understand the employee as a witness of time. Even an embodiment of time itself.
