    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]
