Book Hack
Work Won’t Love You BackBy Sarah Jaffe

In a Nutshell

Workers the world over are asked to sacrifice both fair wages and comfort for the love of the job. But that love is a scam to exploit the worker, explains Sarah Jaffe in Work Won't Love You Back.

Work has not brought us liberation, freedom, or even much joy.

Sarah Jaffe


They say 'do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life.'

According to Sarah Jaffe, this maxim is not only wrong but one of the central problems with the modern work culture.

Jaffe is a labor journalist, host of the Belabored podcast, and author of Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt.

In Work Won't Love You Back, Jaffe argues that being convinced we love our jobs is exactly what keeps workers exploited and oppressed.

We've lost employment security, gig workers don't have insurance or protection, and more and more work is becoming underpaid and scattershot.

Workers are expected to find the work itself rewarding enough to not ask for the compensation they need to live.

With this book, Jaffe investigates the root causes of the harmful love-your-job culture.
