Our Jobs, Our Stories

Half our waking hours are spent on the job, consuming the lion’s share of our time. Our years are woven with stories of work told around the dinner table, breakroom, and bars. Yet these stories are rarely put into print, our jobsinvestigated, or seen as they should be; as part of workers’ activity to understand and change their lot under capitalism.
Join us on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 5:00 P.M. ,at Sweat Records, for an evening of sharing stories about work, and efforts to organize around the challenges we face on the clock. Members of the South Florida IWW, a revolutionary union for all workers, and Recomposition, an online publication of stories and analysis by workers towards a world of self-management, will guide the discussion and read stories as part of a series of events for the publication of Lines of Work, a collection of stories written from the cubicle, cash register, hospital, factory, or job site.
