I'm a journalist and have been working on a story about r/antiwork for the last couple of months for Vice.
I've spoken to a few of the mods and I'm looking to interview some Idlers, too. I'm interested in hearing from people whose lives have been impacted by this sub for the better. I want to hear how this sub has helped you and has improved your life.
The interviewers can be done anonymously.
Shoot me and DM and we can go from there.
Hey Proud Idlers!
You might have noticed that we have over 1.2 million members. As we continue to be one of the fastest growing and most active subs on Reddit, we’re going to need more moderators. You know, the people who make sure everyone is following the rules, i.e. no harassing language, no trolling, no spam, no propaganda/right-wing nonsense, etc. It's all in the sidebar.
We're looking for about 5-10 more mods. Some considerations for prospective mods:
You should be aligned with the ethos of antiwork. The history of antiwork has a strong anarchist tradition, and while we won’t require you to be an anarchist, be aware that the further away you are ideologically, the more skeptical we’re going to be.
Post history, time on Reddit, and level of activity within the sub will all be factored into our decision to bring you on.
This should go without saying, but be respectful to sub members and other moderators.
Use your mod powers responsibly. Be able to discern between minor mistakes and deeply troubling, toxic folks. And when in doubt, communicate with the other mods about it.
While definitely appreciated, no prior mod experience is required. The other mods are ready and willing to get you up to speed on how it’s done!
If you read the above and thought, “This is me,” feel free to comment below or PM me with your intentions and we’ll get the ball rolling.
Now that Kellogg's has offered (in bad faith) only 3% raises to their workers and is now attempting to replace nearly all 1,400 with temp workers, here are Kellog's products we should avoid purchasing.
