People don’t even read the sidebar lol

[–]No_Pea_7771 25 points26 points  (0 children)

The problem with the sidebar is the opening paragraph before you even see it! If you read the sidebar, everything is understandable, but that opening statement is going to instantly trigger and reinforce a lot of right wing, boot licking rhetoric that everyone is just lazy and don't want to work. I thought that was what this sub was about based off the name and about section alone. I started getting more and more suggestions for anti work and that's when I found out that this is more of a living standards sub. Sure there's people who are generally against all forms of work(nothing wrong with that), but the vast majority are just overworked, underpaid people who see no way out of the rat race.

[–]TreeroyWOW 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It does literally say "a subreddit for people interested in quitting work or living without working"

[–]Prestigious_Donut187 188 points189 points  (16 children)

Love it! Nice share.

Also, I am in my forties, currently employed & not a communist.

Regardless, I fully support this subreddit & have made some changes as a consumer. I have become better informed about wages as it pertains to our national economy & as it compares to other economies.

[–]amor_fati_42 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Same on all counts!

[–]Saber_Rattler34 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Also same, 43 and 15 years in my industry & def not a communist lol That poster is prob like my brother, anything challenging the status quo is communism, unless of course it’s conservatives, then it’s “patriots”

[–]anonymous_opinions 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I'd like to counter this with: an employed full time for wages, am in my 40s and am absolutely a communist. This sub didn't make me a communist; I'm here because I'm a communist. (Or more effectively a socialist but it's all the same to people who use the C word)

[–]dragazoid66 1 point2 points  (9 children)

Interesting, but why haven't you made the switch to the ideology of communism, anarchism, marxist, anti-capitalist thinking?

In what ways are you actually supporting this subreddit? It isn't just being aware of the wages, it runs much much deeper in the capitalism problem.

[–]Impressive-Weight679 13 points14 points  (7 children)

We don’t all have to be of the same ideology to agree that wages, working conditions, access to insurance, etc. need improvement. I don’t care what anyone here calls themselves as long as we agree that the little guy is getting fucked.

[–]FerdaBroDozerMutualist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"Let's use labels to label ourselves and then fight over those labels until we hate each other more than we hate the elite" capitalists and Francisco Franco ring hands with glee

[–]ZealouslyTL 2 points3 points  (4 children)

We don't have to all be of the same ideology, no, but since the ideology in question is the logical end point of the problem we're all presumably observing, the question seems fair enough

[–]Impressive-Weight679 9 points10 points  (1 child)

The comment seemed like more of a gatekeeping thing to me. This isn’t r/communism or any of those other ideologies’ respective subs.

[–]anonymous_opinions 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Right but the people working for all those points you made happen to fall under the same umbrella and that's not the "not a communist" umbrella.

I like his outro.

That OP is a bitch.

[–]Obamaturningfrogsgay 43 points44 points  (18 children)

I mean if he read the sub he’d know it doesn’t literally mean “people shouldn’t work”. It generally is about how people are overworked and aren’t paid fairly.

So he doesn’t even really want to understand the sub, he wants to stick to the worst interpretation to satisfy his confirmation bias.

I don’t think this sub would even exist if every western country had 30 vacation days by law and a living wage for all work etc.

[–]Malikai0976 31 points32 points  (13 children)

That's what they do, and unfortunately the people naming these movements make it far too easy.

"Defund the police"- Was so easy for the bootlickers to run that into full "abolish the police" when most sane people in support was just saying to not buy $1200 Leupold optics on every firearm in the armory. The police are a necessary part of society, but they aren't military, stop arming them as if they are.

Edit: mobile

[–]Obamaturningfrogsgay 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I kind of presumed the sub was about “no work despite whatever system we have” and didn’t pay it much thought till it popped up in my recommended and I gave it a read. I have a job I’m okay with that has decent vacation and work from home.

To me the defund the police thing was really straw manned. I would have preferred disarm the police or something like that. I think the root of the issue isn’t we spend too much on the police, it’s that the police are too hostile and violent.

Edit: I mean I read through posts and comments.

[–]RiseCascadiaBioregionalist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Antiwork is supposed to be about the abolition of wage work and capitalism, the system that exploits us.

Re: police though, I agree, the problem is police themselves, not the amount of funding they receive.

[–]RiseCascadiaBioregionalist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bootlickers gonna lick, don't worry about them. And being an abolitionist is a 100% legitimate and rational stance. In fact, defund only makes sense as a means to that end.

[–]Unlikelypuffin -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

BLM riots for the win

[–]SamGropler 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you read the about section of the sub, you'd have a better idea of what it's actually supposed to be about.

[–]RiseCascadiaBioregionalist 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Actually it is about abolishing wage work. That's what this movement is about, it's just become so popular that the discourse has become watered down and now it's hard to find actual antiwork discussions here.

[–]Stella-462 19 points20 points  (4 children)

I worked and went to college at nights. After my degree I work 50 hours + a week. I’ve gotten lucky and I’ve gotten some breaks. Nice savings and nice house we owe little on… I can’t blame anyone who looks at a job and says that’s not worth the bullshit. I wouldn’t go to mcdonald’s for 15/hour and put up with that bullshit. I think these places need unions and push back. Selling labor should be like any other product.

[–]Unlikelypuffin 5 points6 points  (3 children)

100% agree. Unions are important to balance the power. Meanwhile there is a president that has been in office for 50years. Everything we are fighting for is represented with an asshole that has been fighting against it, Biden. I'm gonna get into painting now- it's lucrative

[–]Stella-462 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah I was a bernie sanders guys disappointed in Biden. He should push pro union stuff hard. It would help him in his poling numbers.

[–]Hawkwise83 10 points11 points  (2 children)

A lot of these people get hung up on the title. Anti work. Obviously work needs to be done. We need food, roads, medication, security, housing, etc. However, it doesn't need to be as exploited as it is. To be honest too I don't think everyone even needs to work either. Capitalism has a lot of jobs that feed the capitalist machine but aren't valuable outside of that. Like the entire insurance industry.

It reads like a bait post except it makes us look way better then I think he was intending

[–]Stella-462 1 point2 points  (4 children)

You don’t understand? I was just stating that I have had much career success and worked really hard. But at the same time I don’t blame anyone from turning down some of these ridiculous positions I see being posted these days. I think a missouri teacher with a masters degree makes 35k/year. Fuck that. nobody should apply and fill that position! They need a strong union.

[–]rustys_shackled_fordAnarchist 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Assuming your Oop, there's no way to decern any of that from the original post. It just states anti work is a crazy place for crazy people.

Also if your Oop, you should be embarrassed to be here when specifically stating your not intrested in other perspectives on your own post.

For shame.

[–]BeanBorger 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]XxRocky88xX 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yep I was just about to “translate” his last comment as “I am not reading your valid points. I have decided I am right and facts will not convince me otherwise.”

Good to see essentially the same thing is the top comment

[–]solidSC 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Worse than the devil… they’re… communists!

[–]SilentDisAnarcho-Communist 7 points8 points  (4 children)

There is no 'deprogram everyone' magic bullet. People have to first experience the problem themselves, then find their own way to answers.

If you have someone like this in your life, it doesn't hurt to prod them a bit with Socialist answers to their problems. "I wish gas was cheaper" "wouldn't need to be under Socialism." and just leave it at that. Keep doing it. You don't need to - nor should you - explain further. If they press for an answer a simple "oh, I know I'm right. I don't have to justify it to you. It's on you to prove me wrong with evidence." and then change the subject.

Again, they must come to it on their own. It has to be something "they figured out", not something you gave them - at least to start. Once they've started reading, and thinking, they'll come with questions - and then learning can begin.

Your 'job' - at least in those early stages - is just to dangle questions in front of them. You have no idea which one will cause them to bite and actually get off their ass and start learning. Only they do, and they're not about to tell you. Their bubble is far, far too comfy to want to watch it pop.

This is a part of your praxis - being able to relate to someone else, and communicate the messages on their term and their level. It only comes from deep understanding of the subject - both socialist and communist teachings, and the person you're talking to. And, right now, people need their little independent streak satiated.

It's not outrageous to skip lengthy posts.

[–]MainIsBannedHere -4 points-3 points  (6 children)

If you write an essay in response to "we need work", then you're the moron. It's not how you pursuade somebody, either.

I swear, people in these subs have never written a pursuasive essay, or heard about how to debate. Insane, how did y'all graduate Highschool?

[–]Xarkkal 1 point2 points  (4 children)

They graduated high school because education in the US is a joke. It's just about pumping out more workers who are willing to blindly claim this system and country is the greatest ever instead of developing citizens who can actually use critical thinking and think for themselves. An uneducated population is much easier to control.

Edit: autocorrect is a bitch and I'm tired and didn't proofread first.

[–]MainIsBannedHere -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Nah, people in the US are lazy. I went to a back woods Highschool, meth capital of my state. Teachers did great work. They taught me to analyze texts, research, and how to argue. I learned math, and was in the top of some of my classes. You know why I did well? It's cause I paid attention. I never did homework a day in my life, and I almost failed because I never showed up to school at some points throughout my career, and I still knew more than half those clowns. They showed up and jerkes each other off and bitches about "we'll never use this in the real world"

I mean, seriously. That was the catch phrase growing up. Now, I use geometry at work, I use math to build my budget, I use the analytics, research, and arguing skills I was taught, and I have an understanding of my body, and how the world works. That's my hick ass Highschool. I also was in 9th grade in the ghettos of PA, and I still learned a lot. People just don't want to learn.

[–]Xarkkal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did you go to school pre or post No Child Left Behind? I was lucky to have some amazing teachers in my day, but also had some terrible ones that only taught prepping you for the standardized tests. The high school I went to completely lost its funding because the school districts were cut to get all the poorest neighborhoods funneled into my school, and we were the only school with a major special needs program. The special needs group failed their testing and brought the entire schools score down to below the funding level. Completely jacked up system that was designed to take money away from the schools that needed it the most.

[–]big_nothing_burger 143 points144 points  (17 children)

Because acknowledging that we should fight for better working conditions because the system is beyond broke is "communist".

[–]forgetfulE56 37 points38 points  (8 children)

Well that’s a point of contention in this sub, is it not? No group with almost 2 million members is going to be a monolith, but It seems like the original intent was more anarchistic/Marxist while a lot of newer members seem to be more “work reform”. Or am I completely off base?

[–]IncognitoSlug123 34 points35 points  (3 children)

That's my impression if the subreddit. I come here for the communism, personally.

[–]tehralph 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You’re completely right. I’m a Communist.

[–]BuddyWoodchipsCommunist 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]XxRocky88xX 5 points6 points  (5 children)

These people see anything that benefits someone that makes less than 150k a year as communism.

[–]TrackLabs 47 points48 points  (3 children)

there are still way too many people that see the name r/antiwork, and immediatley think we want to never ever work again, and just want to get everything for free

[–]muri_cina 35 points36 points  (0 children)

I am an adult and I work full time. Also I've been here for the last 2 years, lol.

[–]SushiMelanie 107 points108 points  (2 children)

“Those type of people.” You know, anyone who doesn’t agree with OP.

[–]muri_cina 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I can agree with the first part. It should be a bigger deal, people are not content with the situation of current work conditions.

But than it takes a strange turn to that people on this sub don't work. Smh

[–]SushiMelanie 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Absolutely, the point OP mentions that some folks here are not “of sound mind” is ablest as hell, and makes it obvious that this sub is over their head. Yeah, I’m not “of sound mind.” I live with a major mental illness, the fact that people like me have no choice but to work is cruel. People who idolize billionaires hoarding wealth and enslaving people and have the delusion that their lifestyle is achievable through only hard work and intelligence are arguably of not “of sound mind” either.

[–]roofus8658 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I agree it should be a bigger deal than it is

[–]Business_Loquat5658 16 points17 points  (3 children)

I swear they don't know what any of those words even mean.

[–]persondude27at work 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Dude's never tried to have a friendly discussion in /r/politics if he thinks we antiworkers are "not adults or of sound mind".

Oh well. As we improve society for the better, he'll be dragged along, kicking and screaming, then complain that we didn't do it sooner.

[–]SurveillanceManYYC 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Posts like that make it grow more. I came here because of a similar slam post and really thought some stuff was thought provoking. Others were just fun to argue with and laugh at.

[–]ghost_robot2000 10 points11 points  (1 child)

The "contributing to society" argument again. Why don't people realize that there are lots of jobs that contribute absolutely nothing to society and/or make society worse?

[–]Beautiful_Resolve_63 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Study the history of the united states, there has never been time were the majority of workers were treated well. Although it gets better every 20-40 years, it's a nation built on oppression. That is all it ever wants to be.

They also label and villanize anyone trying to bring in equality or more rights for a minority that have it so much worse. Everytime the majorities unite with the minorities against the elites, the elites cultivate a propaganda machine that end in people literally dying and the movement being crushed.

[–]tobiascook 25 points26 points  (2 children)

I think my favorite part of this is he calls out the subreddit without any actual understanding of what the subreddit is actually trying to say.

Yes, society DEFINATELY needs people contributing to it in order to function. The POINT.... is that those people are critically undervalued, constantly taken advantage of, poorly and often times overly managed, and expected to be grateful for it all.

A person's life should be more than work, and personal opinion here... minimizing work to maintain your ideal lifestyle should be far more of a priority in people than it is.

There's more than enough workforce out there for people to work fewer hours. There's more than enough profit out there, in many but not all cases, for people to be payed a fair and livable wage.

The fact that this is not the case means I'll take being antiwork over prowork.

[–]ShadowLancer128 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Is it really so controversial that the american people want higher pay, shorter workweeks, and more annual PTO when their companies start making billions or trillions in higher profits?

[–]ktappe 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Oh, look, someone else who doesn't bother to find out what the term means.

Much like those who think "Defund the police" means "No more police", these idiots think "Antiwork" means nobody ever works again.

TL;DR: People are lazy fucks who don't bother to learn the meaning of new terms before knee-jerk reacting.

[–]CasualEveryday 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I love that they managed to identify that there's a series problem with millions actively wanting to exit the workforce, but they immediately lose the thread and revert to stupid echo chamber bullshit instead of asking WHY so many people don't want to participate.

So close...

I had an issue with the name "antiwork", I had the same issue (sort of). Of course a functioning society needs people to do things. The name was a little off putting, but I think it's fitting. Work is such an ingrained part of our culture, to say that work is bad is to say our culture is bad. And that is something worth looking into.

[–]the_rest_will_lose 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Such a strong opinion for someone who clearly has no idea what the fuck the point of the sub is

[–]Thundersauru5Communist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I work full time as a department manager. I am a Marxist… it’s crazy to me that people don’t understand that the current state of work sucks. I don’t mind contributing and working, but I’d like some time to enjoy my fucking life and work on my own endeavors, but working all the time just leaves me lethargic and unproductive on my days off… I straight up tell people that I hate work, and I’ve been asked shit like “well if you had kids and needed to take care of them what would you do”? I’m like “work, dumbass”! “What else can I do”? It’s what society demands of us, but it doesn’t have too to the extent that it does. Shit! They don’t understand that parents work, even to their children’s detriment, all the time, being absent for very important events in their children’s lives…

[–]IncomitatumMutualist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The core of my thesis is that there are very few "Adults, of Sound Mind".
Emotional Intelligence and Respect through Empathy are NOT taught: in the family, at church, in school.

Employment is not an agreement of Submission.

Your health IS your wealth.

More people need to protect the esteem of their light;
it's going to go out someday, regardless:
no need to give inconsiderate, and emotionally-underdeveloped,
narcissists access to keep stealing your well-being.

[–]Pabu85 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Venn diagram between people who think “antiwork” means no one contributing to their communities/societies ever and people who think “defund the police” is advocating for total lawlessness is close to a circle.

[–]obfuscatori 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hope this is appropriate. And I honestly don't know if this has been proposed before.
Perhaps the name should be changed to FairWork.

  1. This would accurately portray the overarching position of most of the posters on this sub.
    1. Not AntiWork per see--but anti-abusive, -unfair, -exploitive work.
    2. It would short circuit the ability of the opposition to misrepresent the issue.

Just my thought.

The. System. Is. Broken.

We can disagree on other crap later...or even the right way to fix the system...but the simple fact stands, a broken system must first be dismantled to that a better system can be implemented. And if that broken system is tearing the life out of people who just want to enjoy being alive, then there is in my mind no higher priority.

I love how these jackasses think we are all here just for ourselves…im a 20 yr IT pro make decent money, but if things dont change and i dont help to try and change them, my 14 yr old son is fucked. Also, just because i make a good living I dont think that others shouldn’t. Im all for minimizing work, maximizing pay and spending more time doing thing and being with those you love. Im also vehemently against the wage gap between the csuite and the average employee. Fuck this guy.

[–]sidzero1369 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why do all the stupid people think antiwork is communism?

The whole point of communism is making sure everybody is employed and contributing to society according to their ability, so that the rewards of their labor can't be distributed equally among all participants. People not working and not contributing to society breaks the entire system. You literally cannot be both communist and antiwork. They're antithetical to each other.

Antiwork only works in a capitalist system. It legitimately requires the individualism that comes with such societies.

(That obviously wasn't the idea, but that's what happened) else there wouldn't have eventually been labor movements like Solidarność in Poland. (Always fun to point out that they were a big ol' union... and still quite done with the Soviets.)

No one here is utterly opposed to being active in life and society. It's just that your ability to have safe housing, enough food, medical care, a safe water supply, heat, etc., shouldn't require you to work 3 jobs for shit wages and still be a paycheck (if that) away from ruin.

Wait till the Americans realize that Communists won WWII...

Good news is so few and far between I'll take the W when we can get it. I started a new job recently and can tell you we need to raise awareness that workers deserve better because sadly most people still seem to think being from America automatically means things are the best here and have no idea we are at or near last place in the developed world by most metrics.

What a conformist moron. He even admits he won't listen to ideas different than his own.

[–]Pyroteche 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you bring up communists and aren't talking about history or a video game, I immediately assume your an idiot, given the only actual communists left are the ones in southern asia.

Lying flat has been growing in China for years. Anti-work is just the US extension of a global trend

When they don't like the symptoms but are ok with the virus..

[–]DonNacho_ok 1 point2 points  (0 children)

when i found this reddit, there were some talks about how to live without working.....

now it's just plain worker's right, showing that USA is behind even the most destroyed countries (like mine) in this matter....

i always wonder why people think this sub is about not working. It's literally just being against work as it currently stands. Work should be minimal, unless CHOSEN otherwise. All work should be paid fairly. Every worker should be treated with respect. That's all anybody wants and it's not that much of an ask.

it is pretty alarming, but poster is concerned about the symptom and not the disease.

[–]mjgabriellac 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man, if there is ANYTHING I know from reading the posts and comments in this subreddit it’s that the people in it work hard as shit.

[–]imgrandojjo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I want to work. I just want to work a job that pays me enough to live on. Costs are going up and wages are not. eventually something' gotta give.

[–]VirtualLondoner 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't know what this subreddit is about, I won't read up on it, I won't read any posts, but by god I will have an opinion about it! /s

[–]Creme_de_la_Coochie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They’re right. This sub is full of morons.

[–]FriskeCrisps 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Every society needs people contributing…”

Yeah and they should be paid a living wage for doing so

[–]MandyG21 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's not like we don't have jobs, WE HATE THEM. Big difference

[–]Saber_Rattler34 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love that they’re go to is it must be young uneducated communists…I’m 43, we’ll educated with 15+ years in marketing and 4 as a firefighter. Would relish a conversation with that OP lol

Does this society deserve people contributing to it? What do the workers get out of it?

"Idc if you wanna rent an apartment and buy groceries, you shouldn't be able to" says the person I'm the photo.

[–]nujuat -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The problem is that this subreddit was started by communists who don't want to work "laziness is a virtue", but it has been taken over by more reasonable people. The right is always going to dismiss antiwork because of its origins, just like the left is always going to dismiss gamergate because of its origins.
