Global Labour in the Digital Vortex
Labour Day is, for example, a great time to think about how, though we may not all be working from home anymore, many of us still work for the home with our unpaid social reproduction. We have a growing selection of books on gender and women’s work, such as Susan Ferguson’s Women and Work: Feminism, Labour, and Social Reproduction; Karen Messing’s Bent out of Shape: Shame, Solidarity, and Women’s Bodies at Work; and, most recently, Patriarchy of the Wage: Notes on Marx, Gender, and Feminism, the latest from Marxist-feminist thinker Silvia Federici.
You can also check out our series of graphic novels on labour history by the Graphic History Collective; learn about the historic fight to get sexual harrassment in the workplace addressed in Bonnie Robichaud's memoir It Should Be Easy to Fix; or read up on labour struggles in education with Andy Hanson’s Class Action: How Ontario’s Elementary Teachers Became a Political Force - just to name a few!
