a vertical ordering system aimed at ranking people or things above and below each other, assigning more value and importance to some than to others. in relation to work, hierarchy manifests not only as authority (who is allowed to boss who around), but also in wages. forms of work that are not even recognized as such and are often not remunerated, like gendered forms of (domestic or maintenance) labor, are at the very bottom of the hierarchy of work. (underappreciated, underrated.) also, hierarchy is typically a self-sustaining and consolidating structure: those at the top stay at the top because they are at the top, and vice versa. importantly, however, within hierarchies there are always spaces of agency, possibilities for mobility as well as resistance. how to locate these spaces and possibilities?
