When it comes to our consumption habits, most of us could probably rattle off a list of things we feel at least a little guilty about. We eat factory-farmed animal products, use phones containing minerals mined by horrifically mistreated workers, fly to vacation spots on carbon-spewing planes.
But we rarely apply this same lens to our work, even though most of us could.
Maybe we handle logistics for oil companies planning pipelines across rural America, or process paperwork for collection agencies that inundate overburdened borrowers with threatening calls. Or — er — write freelance articles in a market that rewards snappy, clickable takes over deep reporting on important topics.
