The Working Life: the Promise and Betrayal of Modern Work

March 11, 2013

Ciulla examines why so many people today have let their jobs take over their lives. Technology was supposed to free us from work, but instead we work longer hours-often tethered to the office at home by cell phones and e-mail. People still look to work for self-fulfillment, community, and identity, but these things may be increasingly difficult to find in today’s workplace. Gone is the social contract where employees and employers shared a sense of mutual loyalty, yet many of us still sacrifice personal time for jobs that we could lose at the drop of a stock price.

The Working Life: the Promise and Betrayal of Modern Work, by Joanne B. Ciulla. 1st pbk. ed. New York : Three Rivers Press, c2000. 266 p. ISBN 9780609807378
