What is the Green attitude to work? http://www.imsgrp.com/greenparty/grecon.htm
The Greens are opposed to the waste of unemployment and in favour of the creation of worthwhile and fulfilling work. They favour worker- management and co-operative enterprises, profit-sharing and work- sharing, the economic recognition of domestic work, and the reduction of the working week. They advocate where possible the ownership/control of industry by a combination of worker, consumer, producer and community interests on a local, decentralist basis. The Greens support economically empowering activities such as credit unions, LETS (Local Exchange Trading System) as well as ethical investment, 'ownwork' and enhanced opportunities for individual creativity and self-development.
