If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.

Just look around: a housing shortage, climate change, life-saving medicine and medical care. We need better schools and to replace crumbling bridges and other infrastructure. These all require work. As long as we have unsatisfied needs, there is work to be done.

Ask yourself: “What kind of world has work but no jobs?” It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs; a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.

Society wasn’t built by huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It’s built by people who work. And it is working people who should control the work that is to be done. As long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.
