Fulfillment

by Alec MacGillis

A devastating account of the labor market in America. There was a time when a job could give fulfillment — but for more and more people this word is associated only with huge warehouses, not personal happiness. And in no small part, the responsibility for this situation bears one company. It may seem easy to unjustly vilify the Big Tech, but Alec MacGillis doesn’t rely on bias or prejudice: he gives us terrifying stats and numbers, as well as personal stories of ordinary, hard-working people who suffer from the long shadow of Amazon.

It is great non-fiction, full of painstakingly accumulated details and impressive research, but beautifully written and engaging like a novel. Highly recommended!
