I think we live in a post-industrial society, the amount of available work has diminished greatly, the battle against inflation is a smoke screen the jobs dont exist.
The machines have reduced the amount of labour required, it hasnt benefited the working man because if a machine is doing his labour how can he sell his on the market?
The only way to remedy this is through the citizens wage, we have to trasfer people main source of income away from the sale of their labour toward their social right to an income.
However Post-industrialist acknowledge that since we live in a Post-mass industrial employment appeals to the "working class" or "proletariat" will have very, very little success. Socialism will be choosen by everyone regardless of class because, Capitalism is often choosen by everyone regardless of class.
