I’m currently at work on the manuscript on Feeding the Hustle: Care and Exploitation in the Tech Industry, which will be published in late 2020 by Lexington Books.
Feeding the Hustle is all about understanding what it takes to keep you going in an office environment for an 8+ hour workday, a 40+ hour work week or more. The only rule is that the food & drinks should be supplied, ideally for free, by your employer.
Just a few of the questions that are being explored include:
Q: How do you integrate free meals into you work and social life?
Q: How does free food and drinks help you put in the appropriate amount of work hours? Or time in the office?
Q: Who controls the amount and quality of the free food in your office?
Q: What does “the hustle” mean to you?
