MDR extra: Corona and the world of work

The Corona virus has abruptly changed the working lives of millions of people in recent weeks. Factories are closing, schools, kindergartens, restaurants. Signs everywhere: We are closed. Some companies have been able to change course: producing masks instead of mattresses, disinfectants instead of wine and schnapps. The economy is trying to resist the Corona virus. MDR extra takes stock on 1 May and discusses with experts how much the economy and society have come under pressure. And how the working world has changed: Home office instead of office, Skypeschalte instead of conference room, short-time work instead of overtime. A burden for workers - but perhaps also a change in working culture. MDR extra explores this question, looks at the last few weeks of massive change with employees and employers and clarifies how solutions can be found for this hitherto unknown challenge.
