The Dignity of Work & the Rights of Workers

The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers

Basic: Work is important in God’s plan for adults and their families, so jobs and pay should be fair.

More: The economy must serve people, not the other way around. Work is more than a way to make a living; it is a form of continuing participation in God’s creation. If the dignity of work is to be protected, then the basic rights of workers must be respected–the right to productive work, to decent and fair wages, to the organization and joining of unions, to private property, and to economic initiative.
