Abstract

By drawing upon corporate personhood’s elision of executive and institution, as well as minimalistic life writing, the reality program Undercover Boss presents contemporary US businesses as sympathetic to the plight of their employees. Even as it highlights an affective intimacy between bosses and workers, however, the show strives to perpetuate corporate-friendly labor conditions.
