    Really? Then that’s a rather confusing name. I don’t engage there, but what I got from them is rather an “against” movement, whereas unionists usually have an agenda to strive towards.

      The name is confusing, kind of like “defund the police”. If you take it at face value, you can misunderstand.

      Look at https://lemmy.ml/c/antiwork 's sidebar:

      We’re trying to improving working conditions and pay.

      We’re trying to reduce the numbers of hours a person has to work.

      We talk about the end of paid work being mandatory for survival.

        If a leftist movement doesn’t have a horribly misleading and unnecessarily inflammatory name, is it even a leftist movement?

          I mean the creator of the movement back on reddit was literally anti-work. They went on to get interviewed on the news and made a complete fool of themselves and the people who had a much more well reasoned approach, causing a split into “work reform”/worker empowerment communities, which this one is more along the lines of.

        Hi there! Looks like you linked to a Lemmy community using a URL instead of its name, which doesn’t work well for people on different instances. Try fixing it like this: !antiwork@lemmy.ml
