Bosses and Clients

Bosses and clients is a short story written in November of 2016 and completed as a comic in February 2017. Although autonomous it has been created so as to be part of a bigger collection of stories and with similar labor context.
Main character in these stories apart from the worker/employee (in this case the young man who works delivery) is the working conditions and problems faced by everyone in similar jobs.
In this story I wanted to criticise on one hand the attitude of the bosses (the owed salaries, the pressure, the threats / insults, the dismissals) and on the other the behavior of customers.

In modern society with the expansion of the services sector and promotion of a consumer culture, the role of the client is a role we all play in our lives -We are simultaneously customers and employees (often faced with other customers) and this creates a rivalry mentality. We don't feel solidarity for employees /workers serving us and we are indifferent to their problems -the only thing we want is to be served immediately. And yet when we are on the other side (that of the worker /employee) we face the same by other customers.
