    Re: Do You Have a Right to a Job?

    I speed read the first 4 pages and the last 2.

    Does anyone actually know what this Act is? Does anyone actually know what this Act stands for? Or are they just title readers who can't think and join a party that doesn't require you to?

    "The Right to Work" is a UNION bill. It doesn't simply mean "the right to work" ....................I swear I'm not friends with these Americans...

    I think you need to go back and read the OP. It sounds like you missed something.


    The Right to Work laws are anti-union, if anything, but this discussion is not about unions or the so-called "Right to Work" laws as passed by various States. It's about putting people to work that want to work but can't find a job.

    Do you have a right to a job now? Likely not.

    Should you have a right to a job? Absolutely.

    You do have the economic right to a job right now, it's called self employment. You can choose to use your labor, for your economic endeavours.

    What you do NOT have the right to do is force someone else to purchase your labor if they do not want to. That's the right people are trying to gain with such "right to work" nonsense, not the right to be employed, but the right to FORCE someone to employ them.

    No, I'm quite sure I was thinking of something else.

    Also, self-employment isn't something that realistically exist as an option for everyone.

    What you do NOT have the right to do is force someone else to purchase your labor if they do not want to.
    You assume the best means to acquiring work for everyone is to force employment on private enterprises?

    That's not what I was thinking at all.

    We're not talking disabled people. So who can't do some work themselves? Can you clean houses? Can you cut grass/landscape? What's unrealistic about it? My mother cleaned houses for a few years, you think its beneath you?

    You assume the best means to acquiring work for everyone is to force employment on private enterprises? That's not what I was thinking at all.
    By all means, reveail what it is you WERE thinking about. And please understand that if you intend to tax a private business, and use that to pay for a public works job, in reality you are forcing employment on private enterprise indirectly. They pay for it, involuntarily. That is what you meant yes? And you see the implication I made is correct?

    I suppose that's sort of a solution to a problem, though I'm not entirely sure it's a reasonable one.

    Also, I have to chuckle at the notion that the government "forces employment on employers" by...employing people with the money it taxes from employers.

    It's the sort of thing that sounds like it would kind of make sense in your head...until you take three seconds to think about it and realize it's nonsense.
