DE BEER, E.J.. A theological-ethical judgment of unemployment. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.1, pp.25-50. ISSN 2305-0853.

One of the biggest labour problems in South Africa is unemployment. In this article unemployment is studied in the light of Biblical utterances on labour. The aim of this study is to give guidance from the Bible to role players on how their disposition should be concerning unemployment. In the article the extent of unemployment is investigated. This is followed by probing into different factors influencing unemployment since 1994. After that Biblical principles relevant to the topic are outlined. Finally unemployment in South Africa is judged according to Biblical principles. In the assessment guidance is given as to what the disposition of different role players should be concerning unemployment.
