Working People on Unpaid Labour

Working People has some great episodes, but I think highlighting the contributions and struggles of people who aren’t compensated for the work they contribute to our lives is immeasurably important and the most compelling thing they have brought forward.

The Working People podcast has started a new series on unpaid labour, starting with a stay-at-home mother and exploring the particular and general struggles of parenting without societal support for the work done. Working People has some great episodes, but I think highlighting the contributions and struggles of people who aren’t compensated for the work they contribute to our lives is immeasurably important and the most compelling thing they have brought forward.

In this first installment of our new series on unpaid labor, we chat with Bridget Huff, a stay-at-home mom and political organizer. We talk about Bridget’s life and about the pains, joys, and social pressures of being a stay-at-home parent. We also talk about how political organizations can and should make themselves accessible to folks like Bridget.
