Based on “Not another day”, Slug (a famous US rapper) has mentioned in his song about one of the most important and imminent issues in society: “Live to work, to live, to work, to live. She is going to feed the kid and give it all she’s got to give. Plus she’s trying to catch a little overtime. If she stays till 4, she could be home by 5” (Not another day, 2008). Those lyrics told a story of a woman who worked hard for her family and she never had enough time for her children as for her own life; she always thought of getting the new way of living someday. By the meaning of “Not another day”, it emphasizes about the changing attitude to work expressed of people everywhere in nowadays (Slug, 2008). In the past, people lived to work under pressure and in a stressful environment; however, the new generations of society now are coming with new options of choosing the way to work. They work to live as working for what they love to be happy and their life becomes more meaningful. This essay discusses the causes of these changes in working life, followed by an analysis. Finally, this argument provides effects of those transformations in society, coming from the following statement: “I don’t live to work, I work to live”.
