    I think of them as people with a job to do. Some do it well, others do it less well. This is normal.

      Yeah, it’s like asking “what does everyone think about bosses?” There are good ones and bad ones.

          The “anti-work” philosophy isn’t against bosses or hierarchical structure. It’s about empowering the worker through systemic reforms like creating unions or workplace democracy - literally voting for your boss. Nobody is so naive that they want to get rid of administrative work. Workers want their just due and they can’t be faulted for that with our current systems and relationship to work.

            Really? Then that’s a rather confusing name. I don’t engage there, but what I got from them is rather an “against” movement, whereas unionists usually have an agenda to strive towards.

              The name is confusing, kind of like “defund the police”. If you take it at face value, you can misunderstand.

              Look at https://lemmy.ml/c/antiwork 's sidebar:

              We’re trying to improving working conditions and pay.

              We’re trying to reduce the numbers of hours a person has to work.

              We talk about the end of paid work being mandatory for survival.

                If a leftist movement doesn’t have a horribly misleading and unnecessarily inflammatory name, is it even a leftist movement?

                  I mean the creator of the movement back on reddit was literally anti-work. They went on to get interviewed on the news and made a complete fool of themselves and the people who had a much more well reasoned approach, causing a split into “work reform”/worker empowerment communities, which this one is more along the lines of.

                Hi there! Looks like you linked to a Lemmy community using a URL instead of its name, which doesn’t work well for people on different instances. Try fixing it like this: [email protected]

      Just like a Janitor, or a Security team. If they do their job well most people won’t notice. If they do a terrible job everyone suffers. Kudos to anyone who does a passible job out of the goodness of their heart.
