ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the guarantee of employment and income by the U.S. Constitution. According to a legislative resolution passed in Massachusetts in October, 1985, the U.S. Congress would enact a constitutional amendment to guarantee the right to employment to every person in the U.S. When employment and income are guaranteed to all by the Constitution, the U.S. will be able to give more importance to the basic human rights, and it will deal with issues of human relations including sexism, racism, ageism, and global peace. These issues cannot be handled effectively in the absence of employment and income security.
