9780415926362: My Job, My Self: Work and the Creation of the Modern Individual

In My Job My Self, Gini plumbs a wide range of statistics, interviews with workers, surveys from employers and employees, and his own experiences and memories, to explore why we work, how our work affects us, and what we will become as a nation of workers. My Job, My Self speaks to every employed person who has yet to understand the costs and challenges of a lifetime of labor.

From the Back Cover:

Why do we work? And why do we work so obsessively? Al Gini observes that work rules, runs, and sometimes ruins our lives. But what is intriguing is that in spite of this, many of us come to love, or at least need, that which holds us captive. In this provocative, lively, and sometimes disturbing meditation, Gini reveals that work is not only a fundamental aspect of our humanity, but also a profound reflection of our deepest selves. Peppered with real voices from workers and employers across America, and with references from psychology, history, popular literature and economics, My Job, My Self speaks to every employed person who has yet to understand the costs and challenges of a lifetime of labor.

About the Author:

Al Gini is a member of the Department of Philosophy and the Institute of Human Resources and Industrial Relations at Loyola University Chicago. He is co-founder and Associate Editor of the journal Business Ethics Quarterly, Senior Consultant for the Ethical Leadership Group, and a regular commentator on Chicago's NPR affiliate, WBEZ.
