Aber ist dieser strukturelle Formwandel des Leistungsprinzips überhaupt subjektiv gedeckt, kann das Marktregime Legitimität für sich beanspruchen?
In Auseinandersetzung mit der industrie- und arbeitssoziologischen Diskussion sowie mit drei theoretischen Traditionen im Anschluss an Weber, Marx und Foucault wird zunächst der begriffliche Rahmen der examine umrissen. Anschließend steht empirisch die Subjektperspektive im Mittelpunkt. Wie wird der Umbruch in den Bewertungs- und Vergütungsprinzipien normativ bewertet? Entsteht ein neues "Leistungssubjekt", ausgestattet mit "marktgerechten" und "erfolgsbezogenen" Handlungsorientierungen? Erodiert Leistungsgerechtigkeit als soziale Basisnorm oder wird Gerechtigkeit vielmehr zu einem Prinzip der Kritik an neuen Leistungszumutungen? Gelingt es den neuen Leistungsordnungen, Zustimmung und Gefolgschaft zu mobilisieren oder kommt es zu einer Legitimationskrise von Leistungspolitik?
