Join us on Tuesday November 13, 2012 for our next meeting:  Is the Working Class Paradigm Working Against You?” presented by Catie Wheatley

A presentation on the history of work ethic and what it means in our current political paradigm.  We will view a sample of presidential campaign ads of 2008 addressing the following questions:  How are the concepts of “work”, “worker”, “working class” and “hard-working” used by politicians?  Is this use exploitative?

We will close with an open group dialogue exploring the deeply embedded nature of the working class mythos in our cultural identity and the pros and cons of its prevalence given our current political and economic structures.  Does adherence to this identity affect individual well-being and power?

All sincere seekers are welcome.  A $5 donation is suggested.
