55 Voices for Democracy Podcast: Sarah Jaffe on Working Conditions & Labor Movements

I was a guest on the 55 Voices for Democracy Podcast.

“Until we start thinking about what people’s lives are really like and not just shame them for how they vote, we’re not going to have a healthy democracy,” argues Sarah Jaffe. The labor journalist talks about working people’s disillusionment with politics, and why seemingly incoherent protest movements shouldn’t be disregarded. Does today’s labor shortage give workers bargaining power? Sarah Jaffe’s book Work Won’t Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted and Alone was published in 2021 to wide acclaim.
