ASSIGNMENT QUESTION: In his book, David Zweig argues that many workers gain satisfaction from fulfillment over notoriety. In fact, he argues that today “we are being trained that to seek recognition is a princely value,” but he also suggests that some of the most successful people do just the opposite. [1] Pink would at least partially agree that much of the value from work comes internally rather externally. This conflicts, he would also argue, with the age-old idea that employers often find purpose for the average worker to be “a perfectly nice accessory, so long as it didn’t get in the way” of making a profit.[2] How is it possible for the American cultural norm of individualism and the desire of every worker for fulfilling, satisfying work to be present alongside the economic values of capitalism? For this essay, explain how (if at all) you can see these concepts working together and/or in conflict with one another. ASSIGNMENT REQUIREMENTS: 1. Throughout your paper, you: a.
