Philosophical writer Alain de Botton discusses his latest work The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work. For writing the book he surveyed ten different jobs and came up with many interesting observations about working in today's society. For instance he found that much of the time at work people aren't actually working, but that they are still working long hours. He also found that highly specialized work forces often perform the best, but when it comes to the individual they tend to lack a sense of meaning. Watch Alain de Botton make many more of these observations on this streaming video from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation available on FORA.tv.

I would also recommend Seth Godin's book "Linchpin", and "48 Days to the Work You Love" by Dan Miller, for anyone looking for meaningful work in this economy.
