Why work?

Too often people get jobs because they need money. Well, you say, why else would they get a job? I look at it differently. I believe that we need to work, to be productive, to be useful, in order to be fully human. We need to be part of our society in a meaningful way, and that's what work accomplishes. The fact that we need money is only a spur to overcome any natural inertia or laziness that would keep us from working.
