INTERNATIONAL SALES: FANDANGO
For a few months now, Branko, an ex teacher from Rijeka has been working as a truck driver for an Italian transport company. A decision which can be easily understood as his wage is now triple the amount compared to his previous salary as a teacher.
Yet everything has its price, even if it’s not quantified in money. Whilst growing up, we were told, “work makes a man honorable”, but here it seems that the opposite has become true: It is Branko, with his efficiency, his stubbornness and his good will to make a job which is ever more alienating, bizarre and enslaving, noble.
