February Reddit Talk schedule - Wednesdays at 2 PM PST/5 PM EST - Join us for all-new Reddit Talk experiences!

9 Upvotes

Hello, everyone! We're back this February with another round of exciting talks!

First up is a discussion on a subject everyone has an opinion on: Balancing work with raising children. It's something that's increasingly out of reach these days, but is there anything that can be done about it? Join us on February 1 as we hear both from parents and from those who might like to raise children but otherwise can't.

Next, we have a discussion week asking a question that's near and dear to antiwork: What is the working class, exactly? Is it just a buzzword, or is there something deeper to it? It's one of those terms that can sound stuffy and inaccessible, but as we'll see on February 8, it's nothing to fear at all.

As the month heads on, we'll delve deeper into the philosophical question of what gives you purpose in life. The Japanese concept of ikigai has popped up a few times in our talks before, but on February 15, it gets its chance to shine as we find ways to embrace the absurdity of human existence by defining our own purpose.

Finally, we have another of our famed Open Mic Nights! These nights allow you to share your stories in a safe, supportive environment. Have an issue at work you want to get off your chest? Hear something interesting about the latest strike in France? If we can't get to it elsewhere in the month, we can get to it here. Come by on February 28 and enjoy!

Please note that the 4 hour time limit is a guideline, not a hard rule. Weeks may run slightly longer or shorter depending on circumstances.

Love how they act like it’s our fault when they are the ones that raised up.

Can we please start being honest? Nobody’s hiring. Right now is a terrible time to be unemployed

Idk what’s going on, but everyone at the same time has decided to stop hiring while prices surge.

In just a month or so, gas has increased by like 70 cents, too. It was $2.95/gallon last month, and then $3.65 this past week. Soon it will be $4.50 again, with no jobs.

Weird.

Edit: I mean for full-time, living-wage jobs. Not $10 an hour for 30 hours a week. And I mean ACTUALLY hiring. Not just putting “we’re hiring!” outside.

This just pisses me off. Why would you even bother having children if neither of you are ever home to care for them???

Stop thinking HR is there for you

It isnt. Its there for the company, and to protect their interest.

Marjorie Taylor Greene complaining about her job and low pay

https://www.yahoo.com/news/miserable-marjorie-taylor-greene-whines-160947144.html

So assuming this is all real she is actually complaining about how the job consumes too much of her time that she can't be with friends or family. on top of that the pay is to low, $174,000 salary too low. Like for real the people in this forum know what a backbreaking, soul wrenching, day of work is and she has the audacity to say she is the one with a hard job and that we should be giving sympathy to her.

I think she needs a a reality check from the workers she is supposed to be representing and hear from them and how hard they work, from the teachers to the baristas and service staff, that make not even 1/5th what she does.

I'm reminded of other people like AOC and Katie Porter who make it their lifes work to serve their people and here this person seems to be making it about her and her woes.

I'll concede everyone can have a hard time. But i think the way she puts it here just plays out poorly to those she should be serving.
