Just Work

Written on July 4, 2011. Written by .

This book discusses the issue of work in general, that is the fact that most people are effectively forced into jobs that they may or may not want to be in. The book upset me at the beginning when it seemed to advocate a guaranteed minimum wage for everyone without discussing the implementation at all. But after that the book went on to describe many interesting viewpoints on how work could be morally justified. It discussed forms of exploitation on the one hand, and ways that work could be properly fitting with ones values on the other hand. Around half of the book seemed like fluff, but that is actually a reasonably low fluff fraction.
