Fuck Work

Had a long and interesting conversation with one of our students about a job he had . He had worked at a printers, doing typesetting. He got very serious repetitive strain injury in his wrists and arms from typing 10 hours a day. Working shifts meant he couldn't spend much time with his kids while they were growing up. We talked about how strange it is that crap jobs can dominate someone's life, and why people accept this state of affairs. Interesting and depressing.
