Abstract

Samenvatting

In deze bijdrage wordt geëxploreerd in hoeverre de coronacrisis van invloed is op onzekerheid over het voortbestaan van de arbeidsplaats, hier geoperationaliseerd als beroepsonzekerheid. Tevens wordt de samenhang onderzocht tussen beroepsonzekerheid en twee maatschappelijke attitudes: politieke machteloosheid en geloof in een coronasamenzwering. Vanuit de literatuur over samenzweringen wordt tot slot afgeleid dat beroepsonzekerheid met het geloof in een coronasamenzwering samenhangt, omdat dergelijk samenzweringsdenken een poging is om betekenis te geven aan een crisissituatie, zoals de coronapandemie. Deze hypothese wordt getoetst door na te gaan in hoeverre politieke machteloosheid de samenhang tussen beroepsonzekerheid en het geloof in een coronasamenzwering medieert. In december 2020 werden via een online survey data verzameld bij 1324 respondenten in Vlaanderen (België). Alle hypothesen werden daarbij bevestigd. De resultaten suggereren dat de coronacrisis niet enkel van invloed was op onze gezondheid en ons gezondheidszorgsysteem, maar dat ook werkgerelateerde, politieke en maatschappelijke attitudes erdoor ‘geïnfecteerd’ kunnen zijn.
