Bullshit Jobs

By reading this koob, you’ll find out what “bullshit jobs” are.


You will also discover:

- why so many jobs are like this;

- that the more useful a job is, the less well paid it is;

- that capitalism isn’t what you think it is;

- why no one takes a stand; and

- how to build a better society.


The term “bullshit job” made a real impact when it first appeared, and for good reason: more and more people today have pointless jobs. They get paid to do nothing, they’re totally bored, they have to figure out how to deal with incompetent or narcissistic bosses, they drown in paperwork, and they have mindless tasks to perform. Quite frankly, this work shouldn’t exist at all. These so-called “jobs” aren’t worth it—they can even be dangerous—any rational CEO would eliminate them altogether. So how do you explain their proliferation? Why does everyone bury their heads in the sand and just treat it as a given? Why does voluntary slavery exist, and why is there such widespread resentment? Are you a victim of the global conspiracy? This koob will open your eyes to what’s really going on.

It seems like the author is misdiagnosing many jobs as bullshit. Rather their usefulness has just become harder to perceive. Our society is increasingly complex. Every role becomes more specialised, and consequently the societal functions they serve become more incremental. But that doesn't mean they're not important. We all agree that some professions are relatively more important, but this sneery attitude to the invisible workers who smooth society's way is just boring pseudo-intellectualism.
