We humbly suggest:
- Human beings were made to work.
- Government policies should incentivize work.
- Everyone should have access to work and should receive just compensation for their labour, enabling them to have access to productive leisure.
- All work has dignity.
- The state, the market, and civil society (particularly institutions like unions) should work together to encourage just and meaningful work.
