I’ve been considering the labour I commit to at University parallels the perils of Liquid Labour. The subject requires the interactivity with a live feed of content being generated constantly. I pay for the opportunity to work and engage with an institutional workforce, but it hums incessantly with the internet. How much I engage with the content outside of class will benefit me with higher marks, and there is much to engage with. There is an incentivised value in learning. How different is this to the work we commit to outside the employee work hours? Those hours are investments into your workplace, like an education. There are no longer incentives of higher pay to do more. You are taught at University, that to achieve and be promoted you have to go beyond what is expected. You had to perform. But now you have to prove that behind the scenes you are rehearsing, over, and over. Prove that your performance is true to everyone on every communication platform. I understand Liquid Labour as an act of preparation.
