Platypus Society Forum: The Politics of Work (Audio Link) on Work

February 6, 2014 at 12:45 am (Uncategorized) ()

Last week on a bitterly cold night, I spoke at a Platypus Society forum on the Politics of Work representing Internationalist Perspective. Approximately 25 people came out to hear differing perspectives on work.

My c0-panelists were L Susan Brown author of  the 1993 book The Politics of Individualism and the article “Does Work Really Work?” Dave Bush from the Rank and File project, and Sam Ginden, a former Canadian Autoworkers staffer.

While my three co-panelists looked to what I consider to be solutions within capitalism, I tried to link the politics of work to a broader critique of the value-form.

To hear whether or not I was successful, you can listen to the audio here (but you can skip to the good part at the 33 minute mark!).
