WORK WON'T LOVE YOU BACK How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone

by | Read by Sarah Jaffe

Contemporary Culture • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

An articulate journalist and cultural observer provides a historically grounded analysis of today's work and its costs to the human spirit. Jaffe's exhaustive research, expressed in crisp and lucid sentences, is served well by her high-quality narration. With her amiable vocal clarity and diction, she sounds assertive and confident. She has a beef with the way demeaning and limiting work roles are glamorized by corporate America and the media, especially jobs assigned mainly to women or immigrants. Among her many keen insights, she says capitalistic, often caste-based, work models exploit people even as they are encouraged to spend more, thus necessitating more hours of such work. Less a guide than fuel for broadening one's sensibilities, this is essential listening for culture warriors who have progressive political values.
