A Day in the Life: Interviews with Workers

A Day in the Life: Interviews with Workers

This occasional series covers a day — or a week — in a person’s work life. We speak with people in blue-, white- and pink-collar professions about what they find stressful and joyful, and how current labour and cultural climates are affecting their work lives.

Why? Because we often live in our own bubbles, with people who have employment situations like our own and, often, similar lives. Getting to know other people, including what they do and how they feel about their work, can help us get out of those bubbles and understand each other’s worlds.
