Abstract

Unemployment in post-industrial society has become a major social problem. Current explanations for unemployment revolve around specific principles. They only explain specific unemployment, but do not aid in comprehending unemployment in toto. To fully grasp and deal with the issue of unemployment as a whole, there are general preconditions which must be explored. This paper will examine the social forces associated with unemployment in an attempt to develop a theoretical justification for a social welfare type response. The depiction of current measures aimed at alleviating the impact of unemployment in two countries will allow a determination of the extent to which social responsibility has been realized.
