The Dish: Lazy, Happy Americans

Lazy, Happy Americans

The survey data is interesting, but I take issue with the title. I don’t think putting less importance in work is laziness, I think it has more to do with the average American’s relationship to their employer. The more that we feel like labor is an input or commodity, and the less we treat labor as a collective of people, the less people will connect to their work. And I do think this is endemic to the United States.
