| "Human resource" |
The phrase "human resource" is used to refer to employees, real or prospective.
John Taylor Gatto was very critical of the phrase "human resources".
Ivan Illich wrote in Gender that an important step in establishing capitalism is the erasure of local ideas about the distinct activities for males and females, their homogenisation into a group term such as "human" (or "worker").
Whereas "worker" refers unambiguously to a person, the phase "resource" creates different frames, which propitiate exploitation.
