Hey, r/antiwork, I love working

If you didn’t see the interview with Doreen Ford on Fox News, check here on Youtube.

Regarding this movement, things can be viewed from two different angles.

  1. You want a work-free life, but to have the same life quality as other people who work their asses off more than 40hours/week

A subreddit for those who want to end work, are curious about ending work, want to get the most out of a work-free life, want more information on anti-work ideas and want personal help with their own jobs/work-related struggles. r/antiwork

  1. You love working, but the system is wrong.

We believe that each person should not be worked to death by their employers with ridiculous wages that are unable to cover basic living needs. We believe that all labour should provide every person with all basic life necessities, which includes food, healthcare, and shelter. One should not have to give up one for the other — they are fundamental human rights and there should not be exceptions to that. r/WorkReform

I sympathise with the second one. Without work, I’m not sure if I can keep my sanity. I love working, and so many other people do. The problem is that the system is so fucked up that even if we work our asses off, we are not living a decent life. We don’t really need higher wages. We just need the minim wage with access to the medical system. And to pay our bills, studies, buy something for us and take care of our family.
