The Future Isn't Working
A wage, these days, is increasingly hard to come by, and increasingly precarious when found. The proliferation of agency work, zero-hours contracts and underemployment is well-documented. Microtasking, where people are paid per task to work from home for tech giants like Amazon, is perhaps the most developed form yet of this tendency towards casualisation and income insecurity. The idea of a job for life – itself nothing to romanticise – has been decisively consigned to the history books.

Step One: You can’t
Capitalism depresses me. Obviously because of its political and social destruction, but also because it forces people to be a slave to the wage without much choice. What do you do if you’re too anxious, depersonalised, dyspraxic, slow working and existentially confused? What sort of place can I work in then, that still saves me a bit of integrity? I don’t have time to think about which company i’m going to be made to work for because I’m too busy thinking about how I’d even survive in a job based environment without having a panic attack.
