The imagination of modern artists has no boundaries. Instead of painting and holding exhibitions, they organize unusual performances and implement mysterious projects. For example, two Swedish artists, Simon Goldin and Jakob Senneby, decided to employ a person who would do nothing for life.

The artists created a special fund "Eternal Employment", in order to raise funds for the salary of a person who will have to receive it just like that. Simon and Jacob has already collected 650 thousand dollars and the amount of the salary fund continues to grow.

All this time, a person can do anything, but only without leaving his workplace, that is, the train station. The position of "forever employed" implies a full social package. The employee is provided with days off, official leave, as well as a pension. In order for the employee to comply with the terms of the contract and not try to earn extra money, he was assigned a good rate — $ 2,320 per month.The experiment of Jacob and Simon is designed for 120 years, so the best option would be a permanent employee. But if he wants to quit, then the contract does not provide for any sanctions and obstacles — they will simply hire another "specialist" instead, as it would happen at any enterprise or firm.

Senneby and Goldin are probably the best employers on the planet

The beginning of the experiment "Eternal employment" is planned for 2025. When asked by journalists about what artists want to achieve with their long—term action, they answer that their goal is to create an urban legend or a meme about a person who was paid money for idleness.

Don't you want to try your luck and get such a "not dusty" job?
