Against the Grain

Work, Life, and Class Difference

Is it true what many theorists are saying, that the line between work and the rest of life is blurring? Barbara Ellen Smith and Jamie Winders suggest that there’s a class bias to that claim; they contend, in the volume Precarious Worlds, that for millions of low-wage workers, the line is in fact getting more defined in the face of economic insecurity, attacks on public institutions, and the targeting of immigrants.
