    Question what does "occupation" here mean?

    ..."We have lost the connection to the maker in our lives, and our tech engineers are the ones who feel impoverished, because they're surrounded by the digital world," he says." They are looking for a way to regain their individual identity, and we've found that introducing real crafts is one way to do that." This craft based theory is rooted in history,... The Arts and Crafts movement defined itself against machines. "Without creative human occupation, people became disconnected from life," Morris said.

    What does "occupation" mean in this passage? And obviously it is uncountable in it. Thanks for help.

    It means "something to do" "something to occupy time." ;)
