New York Magazine’s May 15–28, 2017, issue focuses on work, with pieces by Lisa Miller on Ford, Caitlin Flanagan on Ivanka Trump, Molly Fischer on Slack, and more.
On the inspiration behind the work issue, New York print editor Jared Hohlt says: “Trump ran his presidential campaign on jobs, and so one of the objectives of the issue was to take a closer look at a place where his promises will be most visibly tested: Ford. We also wanted to look at how office culture is changing in some companies thanks to the instant-messaging service Slack, which is bringing both the good and bad habits of the internet to the workplace. Gabriel Sherman delivers a column about the working conditions at Fox News post–Roger Ailes (just how much has changed there?). And Caitlin Flanagan considers the strange, almost sui generis career of Ivanka Trump.”
