Welcome to Rethinking the Job Culture (formerly Radical Unjobbing)! This is the new online home of me, D. JoAnne Swanson, founder of Creating Livable Alternatives to Wage Slavery (CLAWS) and former owner of whywork.org, a pro-leisure and anti-wage-slavery site that has been online since 1999 when I originally merged my work with Sarah Nelson’s Leisure Party site.
Although whywork.org is still online, I have not been involved with it since 2004, and I have no control over the state in which it currently exists. Its last update was years ago, and sadly the forums, which were once fairly active and well-loved, are now defunct.
Here you will find old material from whywork.org, and there will be news about the revival of my long-dormant book project, On The Leisure Track: Creating Radical Alternatives to Conventional Employment.
To contact me, use e-mail: radical.unjobbing AT gmail. Please understand that although I read all e-mail I receive, I cannot answer all of it, or I’d have no time left for writing!
