ENCORE! "The New Nature of Work" Monthly Listening Circle, August 23, 2022
We present the same topic for August since there's a lot to think about. No need to have attended in July, and even if you did don't worry - each circle is new, guaranteed! Welcome.
Some call our new relationship with work "The Great Resignation". It seems that we're not all that eager to return to the J.O.B. but instead find ourselves exploring both the hustle, and the very role of labor work itself. This month, we take a look at how we got here - wage labor has its own interesting story with its own beginning...As the means by which to acquire money evolve, the intrinsic value of money itself must also change. Money can make money now- not time or skill - so where does that leave the value of labor? And who's labor? Recently I've read the meme, "What's your dream job?"
"I don't dream of labor," as a response hits hard. We must recognize the prominent role capitalism/money plays in how we experience equity. It feels like it's a good time we redefine the nature of work, its value, and role of work in our lives. Join us.
