Los Angeles-based writer Robert Ito has contributed to the New York Times, The Village Voice, Los Angeles Times, Kinfolk, and The Believer, among other publications, covering everything from Hollywood blockbusters and social robots to concierge medical services for the filthy rich. As part of our series Work Sucks, I Know, in which writers explore how jobs aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, Robert wrote a piece for us on “lifers”—that increasingly rare breed of person who picks a job and stays in it for life.
