The Modern Workplace: Having It All And Carrying Work In Your Pocket
Technology has made it possible for many of us to work from anywhere, but technology has also made it seem necessary for some of us to work all the time and everywhere. The proliferation of laptops over the last twenty years sparked the telecommuting revolution and gave us the catchphrase flex time.
Today host Charity Nebbe talks about how work in the United States has evolved and explores the pros and cons of being able to carry your work in your pocket. Guests include Joanne Marshall, author of Juggling Flaiming Chainsaws, Benjamin Hunnicutt, author of Free Time: The forgotten American Dream, and sociologist Kevin Leicht.
