NJFAC Proposals for Decent Jobs for All

There is plenty of evidence that unemployment has many far-reaching effects other than loss of income, including psychological harm, loss of work motivation, skill and self-confidence, increase in ailments and morbidity (and even mortality rates), disruption of family relations and social life, hardening of social exclusion and accentuation of racial tensions and gender asymmetries.– Amartya Sen, Development as Freedom (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1999), pp.94-95. [Sen is winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Economics.]
