According to Marx, the worker is just the subject to the demands of the production process and has little control over the production. Having little control over the production causes these workers to work away from nature. Interestingly enough, Marx mentions that when the worker is “torn away from the object of his labor, he is unable to realize the essence of his creative nature or “species being” through his work” (p. 48). These workers fail
Marx believed this divide would happen because the workers are dependent on their wages as a means of survival where as one of the employer’s objectives is to lower wages in order to reduce costs.

Additionally, for Marx, alienation is one of the main reasons why capitalism leads to communism. In the capitalist context of the 19th century, work was alienated. Labour was treated as a commodity, in the sense that workers were exploited to produce as much as possible for as little as possible so that the bourgeoisie could continue to make profit while the proletariats lived and worked in poor conditions. This lead to the alienation of the working class as they felt a disconnection from what they did all day and who they really are. To Marx, alienation is dangerous in a society because it denies workers “their human, creative origins” (Hampsher-Monk 1992: 499).
They do not get to decide how and what to produce, which results in ‘the relationship between the worker and to his own activity to be alien and not belonging to him’, as mentioned by Marx in the 1844 Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts (1844, p. 62). Consequently, ‘alienation turns the species-existence of man and his human essence into an existence alien to him’ (1844, p.64), because man who is naturally a conscious species-being can no longer make his own life activity or produce universally and freely from physical needs (1844, p. 64). ‘Alienated labour makes his life activity, his essence, only a means for his existence’ (1844, p.63). Thus, according to Marx, most workers in Singapore will be alienated.
In Schwartz’s article “Rethinking Work”, he questions the satisfaction or dissatisfaction people have with their jobs, how they feel about their wage, and their purpose as a worker. Schwartz starts off by saying that the current way the workplace runs was based on a system that was created to minimize the need for skill and close attention. The idea was that workers were only working to get paid and in layman terms were lazy. He continues to say that this approach to work is not doing what it’s supposed to do; in fact it is doing the opposite. Working in an environment where your only motive to be there is your paycheck leads to dissatisfaction and poor work performance.
There is a variety of this throughout the work place. Some employees work very hard, while the other employees don’t care at all and are just there to get paid. This issue can have several root causes such as management, lack of job satisfaction, and even job enrichment. Management can play a role with lack of work ethics due to no leadership or enforcement in the environment. You may not be doing your duties everyday as an employee, and if it is ignored by the management then how will the employee improve?
Alienation: “The state or experience of being isolated from a group or activity to which one should belong to or in which one should be involved.” People who are considered different can easily be pushed out or away from society. People with mental health issues can often find themselves outside of society, not feeling accepted or welcomed because they are different which makes everything worse. In the short story “Paul’s Case” by Willa Cather, this is Paul’s situation. Paul is mentally ill and by the tragic ending of this story, this is made very apparent.
