Surviving the post-employment economyFound
What do these people have in common? They are trained professionals who cannot find full-time jobs. Since 2008, they have been tenuously employed – working one-year contracts, consulting on the side, hustling to survive.
I love not being able to find a professional job, the last time i taught at a college it was temporary, tedious, and meaningless over rationalized crap where they tried to make me feel humbled that they had thrown me a few hours a week, I,m quite happy flogging bits of produce here and there, doing workshops and existing in an economic never world, this is why I warmed to Chris Carlson’s Nowtopia to easily.
Its all about redefining the idea of work for me, so that what I do for a living helps me, my community, and our local eco-systems to thrive, its one of hell of a task, but surprisingly things do fall into place once you’ve dipped your toes in the water, synergy is all around us waiting to connect 🙂
Was great to meet you by the way Ed, chatting around the fire about produce at Offgrid last year 🙂
yeah, I don’t find the idea of a full time job at all attractive. But secure regular income (or rather, a regular means of ensuring food and shelter is covered) is still nice. I hope to soon find/ make a nicely enough paid part-time job that covers the basics (and to help bring about a basic income for all)
