About Our Jobs.
Caesar, Joseph; And Others
The true stories in this collection are based on the employment experiences of four people. Some of the stories were written in the context of their participation in the LaSalle Adult Learning Project. Some come from interviews that were then transcribed and edited into a form that could most easily be shared with other adult learners. A number of themes around employment and unemployment run through the variety of experiences recounted by the four people. Each remembers moments in his or her personal history when being out of work was a positive step toward something better. Issues of self-respect and personal development are raised: questions of what it means to pick up roots in the course of seeking employment; to say no to a dangerous or disrespectful work situation; to take more responsibility on the job; to work for oneself. Stories are illustrated with photographs. (KC)
