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

a book by Sarah Jaffe

Why is ‘Doing What You Love’ a Recipe for Exploitation? on the Womanhood podcast

I joined Mimi on the Womanhood podcast to talk about Work Won’t Love You Back.

Sarah Jaffe’s new book, ‘Work Won’t Love You Back: How Devotion to our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone’, is an in-depth look at how the ‘labor of love’ myth is exploiting workers and why. We discuss exploitation, capitalism, the gendered division of labor, what being an essential worker really means, the impacts of covid-19 on the workforce, and the empowerment in knowing what your labor is worth!
