Full Employment

"…fundamentally, employment is a basic human right and this principle was enshrined in the immediate post-Second World War period by the United Nations. In 1945, the Charter of the United Nations was signed and ratified by 50 member nations. Article 55 defines full employment as a necessary condition for stability and well-being among people, while Article 56 requires that all members commit themselves to using their policy powers to ensure that full employment, among other socio-economic goals is achieved."
From 'Full Employment Abandoned - shifting sands and policy failures' 2008 - by William Mitchell and Joan Muysken.
