February Reddit Talk schedule - Wednesdays at 2 PM PST/5 PM EST - Join us for all-new Reddit Talk experiences!

24 Upvotes

Hello, everyone! We're back this February with another round of exciting talks!

First up is a discussion on a subject everyone has an opinion on: Balancing work with raising children. It's something that's increasingly out of reach these days, but is there anything that can be done about it? Join us on February 1 as we hear both from parents and from those who might like to raise children but otherwise can't.

Next, we have a discussion week asking a question that's near and dear to antiwork: What is the working class, exactly? Is it just a buzzword, or is there something deeper to it? It's one of those terms that can sound stuffy and inaccessible, but as we'll see on February 8, it's nothing to fear at all.

As the month heads on, we'll delve deeper into the philosophical question of what gives you purpose in life. The Japanese concept of ikigai has popped up a few times in our talks before, but on February 15, it gets its chance to shine as we find ways to embrace the absurdity of human existence by defining our own purpose.

Finally, we have another of our famed Open Mic Nights! These nights allow you to share your stories in a safe, supportive environment. Have an issue at work you want to get off your chest? Hear something interesting about the latest strike in France? If we can't get to it elsewhere in the month, we can get to it here. Come by on February 28 and enjoy!

Please note that the 4 hour time limit is a guideline, not a hard rule. Weeks may run slightly longer or shorter depending on circumstances.

Why is it that Americans will riot and attack the capital for an ahole like trump, but won't for their own rights and will happily keep bending over and taking it?

I read this subreddit and hear all the horror stories and all I can think is, wow I'm glad I don't live in america.

You guys keep saying lets organise and take back our rights, but for some reason you'll only do that for a narcissist like trump. WHY?

My boss made me work 20 hours then strategically clocked me in and out on his own at 7am to avoid paying me overtime for the second week in a row.

I feel so bad when I compare my income to Americans

5.3k Upvotes

Hi guys,

Just wanted to go on a rant a little, and get something off my chest, don't mind me.

I live in France, in a city called "Lyon", I have a master's degree, I make 40k euros gross (that's 45k dollars)...and you know what? I'm in the 70th-75th percentile in France, and my pay is typical for a master's degree holder where I live, it's quite normal.

Now I compare myself to Americans with similar degrees, and you guys make 80-100-150 and even sometimes 200k+ dollars with similar degrees !

I feel so garbage in comparison: I worked my ass off for years, I've tried real hard to get in a good university and...I was born in the wrong country.

This sucks man, it really does.

Biden’s timing is politically perfect! Time to tax rich/stock buybacks?

For two years, he had the majority in the Legislative branch. Now that Republicans have congress, he floats the idea of higher taxes knowing it’ll never pass congress. Is anyone really fooled by this stunt? Is there something I’m missing?

What can be done in this case?

My daughter just graduated from college in December and has applied for weekend work to make her new meet. A restaurant asked her to come in and will pay $10-11.25. She went and they made copies of her driver’s license and social security card and had her train and do tasks while there. The next day she gets a text saying they don’t have anyone to train her, and that she won’t be paid because they didn’t hire her. She not so much worried about the pay but feels this is unjust. While she was there, an employee walked out and is being hired back.
