"I think that as we move through situations in which people have to decide on their own about how much effort, attention, caring, how connected they feel to it--are they thinking about labor on their way to work and in the shower and so on? All of a sudden, Marx has more things to say to us. So when we think about labor, we usually think about motivation and payment as the same thing. But the reality is that we should probably add all kinds of things to it--meaning, creation, challenges, ownership, identity, pride, etcetera."
