Workshop: Just Wage


Location: Geddes Hall, Coffee House

The workshop will explore criteria for a just wage in the light of Catholic Social Tradition such as: “family wage,” “asset-enabling,” “proper proportionality” according to type of work, productiveness, conditions of work place, opportunity-generation, “contextual justice” (conditions of business), the “preservation of integrity” and additional rights such as right to rest, right to pension, right to accident insurance, right to social security connected with maternity.

This series of Center for Social Concerns workshops will address key topics of the spectrum of social concerns and the Catholic Social Tradition. The workshops are open to faculty, staff, graduate, and undergraduate students. There is no fee; continental breakfast and a simple lunch will be provided.
