Sarah Jaffe

Sarah Jaffe is the author of Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt, which Robin D.G. Kelley called “The most compelling social and political portrait of our age.” She is a Type Media Center reporting fellow and an independent journalist covering labor, economic justice, social movements, politics, gender, and pop culture. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Nation, the Guardian, the Washington Post, The New Republic, the Atlantic, and many other publications. She is the co-host, with Michelle Chen, of Dissent magazine’s Belabored podcast, as well as a columnist at The Progressive and New Labor Forum. Sarah is currently at work on her next book, Work Won’t Love You Back, on the “labor of love”–how we all came to love our jobs, or at least to be forced to pretend to, and how this drains the security, bank accounts, and happiness of workers from restaurant servers to NFL players, nannies to nurses to Hollywood actors. It will be out in 2021 from Bold Type Books. Sarah was formerly a staff writer at In These Times and the labor editor at AlterNet. She was also the web director at GRITtv with Laura Flanders. She was a contributing editor on The 99%: How the Occupy Wall Street Movement is Changing America, from AlterNet books, as well as a contributor to the anthologies At the Tea Party and Tales of Two Cities, both from OR Books, Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump’s America, from Picador, and Labor in the Time of Trump, from ILR Press. She was one of the first reporters to cover Occupy Wall Street and the Fight for $15, has appeared on numerous radio and television programs to discuss topics ranging from electoral politics to Superstorm Sandy, from punk rock to public-sector unions.
