Nice work if you can get it (hint: you can’t).

/Nice work if you can get it (hint: you can’t).

[“Do what you love”] is a secret handshake of the privileged and a worldview that disguises its elitism as noble self-betterment. According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation but is an act of love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, presumably it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient. Its real achievement is making workers believe their labor serves the self and not the marketplace.

–Sometimes it really is just for the money (and that’s just fine).

    It’s a shame this is totally true.
