How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone

a book by Sarah Jaffe

Great Resignation or Great Revolution? Angela Glover Blackwell in conversation with Sarah Jaffe and Saru Jayaraman

I was on the Radical Imagination podcast with Angela Glover Blackwell.

Since the pandemic, people have quit their jobs in record numbers, with around 47 million people leaving their jobs in 2021.  Many of these workers are Black and Latinx; many of them women.

In this episode,  we examine what it means to have a healthy relationship with work, and we hear a radical new way to define the role of work in our lives. Angela speaks with Sarah Jaffe, the author of “Work Won’t Love You Back,” and welcomes back Saru Jayaraman, founder of One Fair Wage.
