we work because this way we interact with other people, because since the oldest times man has learned to work and invent things to make life better, we make money because this capitalist society that we live in needs us to sell our labor, while they pay us low salaries they rip the benefits of our work selling expensive products to ourselves because we need to buy clothes and food and other necesary things to live, this is my opinion

The work should be a way for everyone to acomplish the personal development, unfortunately, as Michael says, most of the people hafta work in jobs with the lowest salaries bucause they need it to survive, so they have to accept the worse conditions.

That changes the work no more in an activity done for passion but in an hard duty that make life hard too. Those who can work in the things they like are really lucky and people have to do that is necesary to reach that goal, but also is important to try to build societies when all people have worthy conditions to acomplish their own goals, societies without so big economic differences.

We start to work to earn money to live our life but in underdevelloped countries,people forgets their motive & start earning mechanically to collect money as much as they can… In develloped countries the situation may be different…
