Re:Work is a radio show that brings you real stories that rethink work. It is a collaboration betwee the UCLA Labor Center and KPFK. Re:Work believes that it’s time to hear from workers who don’t often make it into the spotlight-- and change the future of work. Using the power of stories, Re:Work challenges, expands and enlightens the way we see (or don’t see) work. We use a storytelling format and spend quite a bit of time on audio production. Each episode highlights one individual who share about their life in general until we are able to zoom in on a particular issue - taxi driving, being homeless, working in retail, fighting for immigrants and so on.

Most of us work for a living. Sometimes our jobs take us through hell and back, sometimes they bore us to tears, and sometimes they give us a reason to keep going. We share our stories with close friends and family, but often leave it at that.

Meanwhile, jobs are becoming more and more scarce, temporary, and low-paying. From the gardener landscaping mansions to the security guard on the graveyard shift to the car wash worker making just tips -- all these workers have stories about how they got there, and how they get by despite all odds.
