Saleswomen, bicycle mechanics, and well-off gentlemen with highly paid job contracts come to the Chamber of Labor in Vienna. Here they are counseled, represented, and made aware of their rights. In many-voiced talks, justice is negotiated, self-determination becomes possible. A precise portrait of bureaucracy in service to solidarity. An institution as seismograph of a professional world that is transforming, particularly during the pandemic.
