Work is nonsingular. Work is split up in primary and secondary work. One cant without the other & a reason why technical progress is not the solution to the end of work.
Primary work is the work you are actually doing. Everyone subjectively works primary. A product in any kind of industry needs a specific set of work. Lets say a car factory needs engineers, production line workers, steel industry workers etc. Without them the car wont be manufactured.
All these workers need secondary work simply to be able to work. For example road transport infrastructure / public transport, food industry, clothing industry, care takers, etc. Without secondary work you cant primary work.
All the secondary work is primary work in its self and produces another line of secondary work. Working basically means forcing someone else to work for you.
Even if you build machines to simplify work there will always be more workers building (primary & secondary) these machines than not building them at all.
A car simplified everything! But the cost? Tens of millions of people working to reduce the work to work.
You can play the game with every product you can think of. Only reason is to think of necessities.
Abolish work now!
