About the article
Published Online: 2012-12-31
This article draws in part on G. Standing, Work after Globalization: Building Occupational Citizenship (Cheltenham and New York, Edward Elgar, 2009).
In 2009, a Gallup poll found that only 13% of German workers felt any attachment to their job.
For instance, it has been guesstimated that about one-third of the adult population in a country such as Canada is subject to “episodic disability”, as distinct from chronic or permanent disability. It is hard to imagine a reliable method of distinguishing between those who should be “expected” to be in a job and those not.
Phil Harvey claims that basic income advocates have not addressed the job guarantee arguments. Along with others, I have repeatedly done so (see, e.g., Standing, 1986, 2002, 2005); he has not engaged with arguments proposed as refutations of his points. In his latest paper, he makes no reference to that literature, which has been central since we established BIEN in 1986.
