r/antiwork or just aggravation? A history of work and the near two million people on Reddit that are trying to change it.



You work a five-day work-week due to a movement in the 1920s, solidified by Henry Ford.  You do not work a 30 hours work-week because FDR backed a labor act instead of the Black-Connery 30-Hours Bill.  But until the COVID-19 pandemic, where you work. how long you work. and overall work conditions did not change drastically since then.

Since March 2020, work has changed!  Employees are quitting like never have before.  Many expect to work from home instead of the office.  Starbucks stores are being unionized.  Target is paying a range of $15-$24/hour.  And some people chose to retire or to stay out of the labor market altogether.  Nearly two million people on the subreddit r/antiwork are talking about all of this in vivid detail, and spoiler alert, conversations about companies and their managers are quite negative.

In this session, we will talk about the history of work in the US, current labor trends, and we'll learn through group conversations tools to navigate this market.
