Hand-drawn cartoon shows the suffering of the working man

Karl Marx called it alienation: the separation of a worker and the thing he or she produces. Max Weber called it the iron cage: a prison made of the overly-specialized, assembly-line work environment.

So he took out his frustrations––and particularly his frustrations with working with a bad boss––out on this animation. Anyone who works can sympathize with “The Working Man.”

More great animation.
