On Wage Work and Wanting Less of It

program date: 
Mon, 03/31/2014
Joe Clement talks with Peter Frase about the desirability of working less, the possibility of the shorter work week, and the nature of wage and other labor. They discuss the productivity and problems of wage labor and the value of what is known as "free time"; the varied possible meanings of "full employment"; and the need for collective struggles to change the balance of power in the labor market. They touch on Kathi Weeks' book on The Problem with Work, and the importance of unwaged and immaterial labor. Joe mentions his interview last week with Anna Coote, available here: https://kboo.fm/content/towarda30hourworkweek. 13:26 minutes (6.15 MB)

Patricia Schechter on Possible PSU Faculty Strike

program date: 
Mon, 03/31/2014
Bill Resnick talks with History Professor Patricia Schechter of Portland State University's faculty union, the American Association of University Professors, about why faculty are ready to strike after 10 months of bargaining. They discuss faculty stability, pay equity, and educator-led education and the importance of broad and lifelong learning and the liberal arts, as against administration focus on the needs of short-term business profit. Both students and faculty are in economically untenable positions, with mounting pressures and mounting debt. But students and faculty are in solidarity in supporting each other and the need for lifelong learning.
