The assignment is in a few parts!

1. Please read "The Company Man" by Goodman in your text and respond in YOUR NOTEBOOK

think about the following as you build ideas about emotions and social status and how they contribute to the self. Think about all of the ways people can identify with work and how that can be both a blessing and a burden. Think about all of the ways that work can contribute to how we see ourselves and how others see us. For example ; People tend to describe themselves and define themselves by what they "do". What we "do " for work can unfortunately define how others see us.

What is quality of life? How many hours are you willing to spend working at a job? Why do you think people identify with work? Can social status be a detriment to the human spirit?
