Author and journalist Sarah Jaffe (@sarahljaffe) joins Sean and Jamie to discuss her new book, "Work Won't Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone." Antifada listeners know "do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life" is a dirty lie told by capitalists. But where did this idea come from? In this book, Jaffe traces the rise of "labor of love" ideology to the neoliberal turn of the 1970s, explains how it intersects with racism and sexism, shows how it damages workers, and lastly, gives some ideas for how to defeat it.
