The saying, “love what you do, and you’ll never work a day in your life” puts a pretty face on a labor system that rewards passion with long hours and low pay. Sarah Jaffe is a Type Media Center reporting fellow who covers labor and economic justice, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how our relationships with our employers often take up more space than those with our own families, and why that needs to change. Her book is “Work Won’t Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone.”
