Abstract:
Questions about society's arrangement and distribution of work are the source of great political controversy. The issues involved are highly divisive, and these divisions do not neatly map onto familiar political disputes. That is, even amongst those of similar political persuasion, there is considerable disagreement about the proper use of political power in this regard. Should we pursue full employment, discourage 'overwork', make job-holders more secure, or incentivise workers to take on socially beneficial work? Whilst we can make some progress with these questions by consulting with our intuitions, any fully satisfactory response must make use of an account of the political principles and social institutions that ought to guide society's arrangement and distribution of work. My main aim in this thesis is to make some progress in developing such an account - an account of justice in work.
