“Productive jobs, David Graeber argues, have been automated away and replaced by administrative ones which masquerade as service: HR, PR, financial services, ancillary industries like dog-washing and all-night pizza delivery. These bulsshit jobs are very like T’s. It’s work that looks like work – it fills ups a fort-hour week – but feels pointless to the people doing it and wouldn’t be missed if it disappered.”
