There’s been talk recently about the idea of guaranteed jobs. The idea is that anyone who wants a job is, well, guaranteed one. This idea has been floated by many on both sides of the political spectrum. It’s even proposed by a philosopher who is running for Congress.
On one hand, I think, well, we should be working less, not demanding more jobs for everyone. On the other hand, I think, coupled with a shorter work week and a Basic income, guaranteed jobs may be a great thing.
So, what do you think? Should we have guaranteed jobs?
