Labour is important for a person's material and immaterial well-being. People get an income to live independently through labour. Therefore, employment eases financial burdens. Having too little money to pay the bills is a stress factor that has a huge impact on a person's psychological well-being and puts pressures on social relationships. But employment offers more than just an income. It also links up with the human need for personal development. Employment offers people social contacts and a daily structure. Employment makes demands on cognitive functions such as our memory and concentration, which results in a person having a good feeling about himself or herself. And, more importantly, somebody who works meets the social standard of an autonomous individual who does not have to rely on institutes such as the Social Services or other benefits agency.
