Essential Economic Empowerment
Decent work puts money in the pockets of individuals and families, that they can spend and help rebuild in the local economy. Their purchasing power fuels the growth and development of sustainable enterprises, especially smaller businesses, which as a result, can hire more workers and improve their pay and working conditions. It increases tax revenues for governments, who then fund social measures to help protect those who cannot find a job or are unable to work. In a best-case scenario.
