    Bullsh*t jobs


    0 Not allowed!
    An academic has produced a book which is creating a bit of a stir. Here's a short trail:

    'Do you have a job that you secretly believe is pointless?
    If so, you have what anthropologist David Graeber calls a “bullshit job.” A professor at the London School of Economics and a leader of the early Occupy Wall Street movement, Graeber has written a new book called Bullshit Jobs: A Theory.'


    He reckons up to a third of people are in jobs which they consider to have no real value or pupose. Notwithstanding that Graeber's own job might just fall into this category, does anyone have any good examples. preferably from direct personal experience?
