Example text

The proportion of workers whose labour-market income is below a minimally adequate level is increasing, rather than decreasing. For example, the real value of the US minimum wage declined from 117% of the three-person family poverty threshold in 1968 to 80% of the threshold in 1998 (Pollin and Luce 1998). The health effects of poverty are well documented. It is a paradox, indicative of market failure, that a sustained period of economic growth over the past 25 years has produced an increase in the number of people whose labourmarket income is below a minimum level of adequacy.

While workers might, over time, acquire a good perception of the bundle of job characteristics, the threat of moving to another position if wage compensation or other adjustments in the package were not implemented may be weakened, and this weakness can be reinforced if health, pension, seniority, and other benefits are at risk of being lost. Hence, the high costs of changing jobs can impede the effective working of the market mechanism. High rates of staff turnover are also costly to employers, since they may lose workers in whose skills they have invested.

The first is to adopt an ethical convention commonly employed in a particular discipline, conventions such as ‘workplace safety’ or ‘utility maximization’. Two advantages to such a choice are that it has probably been thoroughly worked over and understood, and that one can communicate with fellow disciplinarians on the basis of an immediately shared understanding of concepts, theories, and their applications. However, this approach has little intrinsic ethical merit, and some downsides are that the convention’s weaknesses may have been glossed over or largely ignored.
