Wage Slave

Listen in app
As children we can’t help but dream of all of the amazing things that we will accomplish.
Then life happens.
We get a job, we get a house, and we get into debt. We settle.
We trade away our youth, for security in old age. We spend countless hours performing mundane tasks that leave us depleted and empty. Our souls crave meaning, but we are too afraid to make any change.
We work for the weekend. Work for the holidays. Work for retirement.
We live to work, rather than working to live.
Through sardonic humour, Wage Slave highlights the absurdity of the modern approach to work and life.
