Work ethic as a choice : A content analysis of five employers about their view onthe non-worker (English)
Abstract [en]

Employers can be viewed as a center of a so called work ideology. This ideology is at least as old as the ancient greeks and effects how we view people who work, and people who for different reasons do not work. Work ethic as a choice is a content analysis of interviews with five employers regarding work and leisure. This study shows that the interviewed employers speak about labour as something everybody must, and will at some point in life, do. People who are on sick leave are to be respected, and all decisions regarding the persons use of their time should be decided by their doctor. No one should get money without first contributing to society by working in a wage paying job. Work is however something healthy and makes people feel good, mostly because of the social context and the feeling of being part of something; of contributing. The work ideology is highly present in the interviewees language and differs between them in accordance with difference in class and economic, social and cultural capital.
