9781926845173: The Wage Slave's Glossary

AS FEATURED IN THE OCCUPY WALL STREET PROTEST LIBRARY

Everybody knows a brown-noser when they see one. But how about a freeter? A workbrickle? A jack? Can they tell downsizing from greybearding or brightsizing?

With The Idler’s Glossary (2008), Mark Kingwell and Joshua Glenn offered a spirited defense of leisure. As confirmed idlers themselves, they assured us their Glossary could provide everything you need to know about how to conduct a life.” Today, however, as we recover from the worst global recession since 1929, the work-world is a very different place. In order to understand it better, our anti-capitalist etymologists are therefore putting down their cigars, picking up their shovels, and drudging out English from the ditch of corporate jargon. For anyone who’s ever had to moil for high muckety-mucks, The Wage Slave’s Glossary is essential reading as the moral wit of Kingwell & Glenn is indispensable to the present age.

From the Back Cover:

The Idler's Glossary was released when the world was experiencing its biggest economic collapse since the Great Depression: The Wage Slave's Dictionary comes as we climb out of it, and continues to explore and challenge the interconnected world of work and leisure and labor, and how the language we use continues to keep us in chains. Fabulously illustrated by Seth.
