Top Definition
The state of being turned off by working or being employed.

People with work aversion (or aversion to work) generally try to get by on as little effort as possible or avoid work altogether, or if employed, put a minimal effort into the work.

Those with work aversion in need of money often turn to drastic measures to try to get money, such as looking for effortless income or easy money, exhausting their savings and credit, getting into debt, begging, or even worse, unethical or illegal activity.

People with work aversion are not necessarily lazy and do not always lack a work ethic in their heart, but simply have a psychological difficulty in working.
My son has work aversion; he cannot push himself to go out and get a job.
