Virtual Event: Housman’s Books with Ray Malone and Kate O’Shea

When you love your job so much that you’ll work for next to nothing, then nothing is exactly what you’ll get.

We’re very pleased to welcome Sarah Jaffe to Housmans to discuss the ‘labour of love’ myth: the idea that certain work is not really work, and should be done for the sake of passion rather than pay. Whether it’s working for free in exchange for ‘experience’, enduring poor treatment in the name of being ‘part of the family’, or clocking serious overtime for a good cause, more and more of us are pushed to make sacrifices for the privilege of being able to do work we enjoy.
