The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers
The economy must serve people, not the other way around. Work is more than a way to make a living; it is a form of continuing participation in God’s creation. If the dignity of work is to be protected, then the basic rights of workers must be respected–the right to productive work, to decent and fair wages, to the organization and joining of unions, to private property, and to economic initiative.
God rests on the seventh day.
God settles man in the garden of Eden to cultivate and care for it.
The Sabbath is for everyone—all are allowed to rest from their work.
The Lord blesses our work so that we may share its fruits with others.
Do not withhold wages from your workers, for their livelihood depends on them.
