    Why do we love The Office? Is it the characters? The jokes? The drama? While those are all major reasons, we want to explore another: how pointless work has overrun the economy.

Straight out of college I worked at a job for two years where the Human Resource management had a PR department that had its own Human Resource management ... but we had no catering/cafeteria, because I guess feeding your employees would take too big a chunk out of your valuable budget, which, of course, is needed to pay for the ALL IMPORTANT 2nd Human Resource team :/

These shows scream privilege because these people have their health, safety, freedom, and security, while others have nowhere to belong, are barely given opportunities to survive, and face life-threatening crises with impossible healthcare coupled with declining health from overwork, on top of high-crime areas.

this is actually so strange, because i grew up "upper-lower class" and many families in the tiny town in Indiana I grew up in were lower to upper-middle class. My family was right on the line of not being able to "keep up with the Jones" or whatever, but still enough to try to *seem* like we were. It was a weird spot to be in for sure, but I remember CLEARLY my mom sitting down to talk with me about my grades and expressing disappointment. She went on to explain that "if you do better, you can get a job that pays a lot, but you sit around at a desk all day. I just want you to be able to get an education so you can get paid to not work very hard" and it confused the ever living shit out of child me, since aimless busywork is like torture. it's surreal to think having jobs like what you described was drilled into me as an aspiration. it's just a little funny i guess, since now i'm working my way up to chef without an education and loving every busy, difficult, tiring, creative second of it.

I was an instructional aide for a school district and while I wouldn't call that a BS job, we were being told that we were being trained to be better than the teachers at helping children with their reading development, and yet you were being paid much less than those teachers and we had less hours and we didn't have credentials

i disagree with anyone who talks meaning from work meaning comes from work because people crave meaning (even nihilists find non meaning in nihilism that creates a illusion of meaning to there psychie) and work happens to be a thing we are all kind of forced into so its natural to find meaning in it

What kind of loser gets "depressed" because they're not "fulfilled" by their "career"? Fucking, get a hobby man. Learn to play an instrument. Paint. Something. Jesus. Work to LIVE, don't live to work. Why the fuck would you complain about having a job that lets you pay the bills and afford food where you don't have to do any actual WORK? You have infinite time to do something that's actually meaningful with your life and not have to worry about life necessities and you're wasting it feeling fucking depressed because you're not delivering babies or some shit? I wish I had a bullshit job, christ.

I don´t think most jobs are completly bs-jobs, Most jobs have at least 10% of actual work in them, buuuuut people including me and everbody else tend to inflate those 10% and act like the company would not run without them. While trying to "look busy" the remaining 90%. By the way I don´t think there are a lot of jobs that are actual work 100% of the time, even the most demanding jobs have some amount over overhead, that could be considered "useless"

I currently work as a microbiology tech at a meatpacking plant/slaughterhouse . My job, specifically, is to test the meat for Salmonella. This is by far the easiest job I have ever had, and with little hyperbole I say that a robot or a trained monkey could do it with little difficulty- computers do all the heavy lifting, I just make sure the samples get there. The worst part is, on the extremely rare occasion that Salmonella is detected, the meat still gets sold with little, if any, change to price or destination. Since the plant deals exclusively in beef, and 99.9% of the time beef is cooked to a degree that would kill Salmonella, there's really no risk in selling it. My job is totally superfluous, and if I didn't come in for a day, I really don't know if they would even have someone fill in for me.

I think an interesting thing to dig deeper about is the service industry. While those jobs aren't necessarily BS, they do encourage that culture of suffering that Graeber commented on! As someone who works in retail, exploring why service jobs have this intense culture (at least in America) of Suffering + Forced Accommodation to Customers = Fulfilling Work could be something intriguing to study! Great video, as usual! Thanks guys! :)

I guess, as an IT helpdesk person... my job is pretty bullshit. I exist to protect people from themselves and to fix computer problems, but the world operated just fine without computers to begin with and if anything they haven't really freed us up to do other things, they seem to have freed us up to just do nothing. I just cleaned the dust off the top of a cabinet in my office. I don't generally tend to do well just pretending to be busy. I've been through a few jobs because of this, I think.

I worked retail at target for four years as a combination cart guy/ janitorial worker and it not so much that the job was useless but by the end so much bureaucratic bullshit started to creep in that my bosses started just adding shit that only made the work take more time. it got so bad that I couldn't clean the restrooms with a mop bucket I had to use a spray bottle if I needed to mop. this on top of being blatantly ignored whenever I needed something taken care of. "equipment not working? oh its fine.'" sure enough its breaks down completely and all I get is a meek sorry like that changes how much I told you this was gonna happen.

There's a guy at my office whose title is Assistant Office Manager. His day consists of counting pens and paper stacks, making sure we have paper towels, soap and sponges in the kitchens, notifying us when the fridge will be cleaned and sometimes filling in for reception. He's literally been asked to recount pens in preparation for a meeting, a task he fulfilled a day or two before. His job is completely bullshit, but he's been with the office for 30 years, so no one wants to fire him or anything. And he's pretty nice.

Super interesting video, and as an extreme Office fan and obsessive re-watcher, I appreciate so much of the insight. However, I do think it's important to note that The Office delivered an important and meaningful message about the nature of BS jobs, via Jim and Pam's comments in the final moments of the show. Jim's are especially moving: "Even if I didn’t love every minute of it, everything I have, I owe to this job. This stupid…wonderful…boring…amazing job." And Pam closes the series: "There’s a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn’t that kind of the point?" We have watched nine seasons of these people put up with absurdity, boredom, nonsense, emptiness, and everything else...and yet their final messages to us give us purpose for everything we've just viewed, as well as their own experiences. Through their BS jobs they found friendship, fun, love, belonging, and meaning. It ultimately wasn't about the work at all; the work was largely meaningless, but they people weren't. And I think that's another reason the show is so powerful: we see not only a humorous commentary on the BS of the modern workplace, but we also see hope that shines through it all.

Mind blow. We don't live in a market economy. A financial crisis would force companies to eliminate waist, inefficient companies would die and labor is freed up for new innovative companies with meaningful work. But instead of letting the financial crisis run its course, people cry for the government to save their jobs and so the government goes more and more into debt to provide security until it is pay day.
