    Do You Have a Right to a Job?

    Surfing the net, I came across this.

    Against mass unemployment, layoffs and workplace shutdowns, the working class must defend unconditionally the right to a job. Every worker who is laid off and all those entering the workforce must be guaranteed paid job training and employment.

    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.

    No, you don't have a right to a job, however, I would not be opposed to creating job tasks for a good percentage of people on some of the social welfare programs. In the private sector, it's pretty much determined by supply/demand market forces, and that can't be guaranteed as a right without taking away incentive.

    The way they define it, that it is OWED to you, no. Emphatically no.

    Do you have the freedom to seek and procure employment? Yes.

    Hmmmm, I'm a bit of a constitutional purist and I don't believe anyone has a right right to a job, but I'm not sure how trying to guarantee one as a right would violate the Constitution.

    No.

    Double no since it's not mentioned in the Constitution.

    But there are some who believe that illegal aliens have a right to take American jobs away from citizens.

    Re: Do You Have a Right to a Job?

    Well we all know that Corp USA and the gang of 8 prefer to employ foriegn criminals rather than US CITIZENS in their own country........

    We dont have ANY rights.....and as McCain stated, we dont even have the rights of a criminal in USA......we are just declaried "foreign combatents"
    in our own country agian...... ... Shift+R improves the quality of this image. CTRL+F5 reloads the whole page.

    And it is the job of the Gov to act in the interest of the Poeple.

    if not, the GOv gets replaced. And that is what the Constitution is all about .

    Such as Rubio. Should be an interesting 19 months until the 2014 election.
    Many things are not mentioned in the Constitution, like God, but Republies say them anyway.

    But the real question is, do employers have a right to employees?
