Finding Meaning In Work: A Labor Day Edition Of 'Radio Boston'Play
Through the years on Radio Boston, we've talked a lot about work and working.
We've taken calls on Americans' addiction to working. We've talked about the future of work, robots and artificial intelligence; the idea of a universal basic income; and the future of union organizing.
We've heard from restaurant owners, writers, carpenters, academics, musicians, politicians, entrepreneurs, artists and regular people about what they do every day — all people who wake up every morning and try to do their very best for themselves and their families, people who want to feel fulfilled in the good that they're doing in the world.
So on this Labor Day edition of Radio Boston, we revisit some of our favorite conversations about work and finding meaning in that work.
