Episode 110 - Work Won't Love You Back w/ Sarah Jaffe
Incredible labor journalist Sarah Jaffe (@sarahjaffe) wrote a new book, and we’re in it! Work Won’t Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone is collection of labor struggles in fields often overlooked, underpaid, or misunderstood. The book is an excellent overview of the type of issues we discuss on this show! Including art jobs, internships, the NGO industrial complex, big tech, retail, gig workers, education, and sports. All through a Marxist feminist lens we vibed with very hard lol. We discuss strategy, the big “was is to be done?” How can we take consciousness raising away from liberal awareness campaigns, pinpoint sites of struggle/support, and heighten contradictions to build a world where love can flourish uninhibited by capitalist extraction.
