Jobs, Meaning, and What Happens When Work Disappears
10:00 am - 10:45 am
Monday, October 25, 2021
Authors Kerri Arsenault (Mill Town), Celeste Monforton and Jane M. Von Bergen (On the Job: The Untold Story of Worker Centers and the New Fight for Wages, Dignity, and Health) and Farrah Stockman (American Made) come together to discuss economic precarity, displacement, wages, and the meaning and fulfillment that comes from remunerative work—and the emptiness and loss that comes when that work either disappears or is so underpaid that it is simply unsustainable.
