    Re: Do You Have a Right to a Job?

    For anyone who votes yes (and responds to this thread in a way that makes sense ), I'd be curious to know who should be charged with enforcing this right and how should they do it?

    that means person B is mandated ( forced) to create and /or provide a job against his will.

    when you make a good or service a right, then it has to be paid for or provide by another person, and that is stealing, and servitude.....unconstitutional on both counts.

    stealing by government is unconstitutional, and putting people in servitude is unconstitutional.

    The constitutional experts from the (not quite) right are rigid until it counts.
    Thatcher was no fan of the common man.

    Interesting point of view. What do you think? Is having a job a right?

    Adding the poll right now. Answers will be yes, no and I don't know.

    Sure why not, the government can provide everyone willing to work a job then to pay for those salaries they can tax them 100%. I like it, free labor!

    Many things are not mentioned in the Constitution, like God, but Republies say them anyway.
    As the first Supreme Court Justice of the United States said, what's not in the U.S. Constitution then you turn to "The Law of Nations." Guess what ? I bet the answer is in there.

    No, you don't. But you should. It's stupid and self-defeating that we don't guarantee people employment. Instead we make people hunt down work and compete for jobs, and then shame them when they don't have one. And use their desperation to keep wages and benefits down. We're all poorer because we don't do this.

    Was he a Federalist or a Democratic-Republican?
    I still love the originals for saying "Creator".
    I say it in class with no fear.
    The simple idea of a "Creator" has helped me personally.
    However, I would still liked to have been one of those scientists visited by the aliens.
    Until then, i'll keep teaching Chemistry in my retirement.
