The World of Work between the Personal and the Collective: A Demand for Social Justice and Guidance for Latin America
Bello, Julio Gonzalez; Chacón, Omaira
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v15 n3 p237-246 Oct 2015
The struggle for justice has been permanent for a very long period of time. In this sense, it could be said that since Plato conceived it as one of the fundamental virtues, justice has constituted a goal to achieve for any society. In the case of justice, related to social aspects, the situation has been overwhelming in Latin America. Based on a literature review, this contribution aims at proposing to consider work, at least in Latin America, as an area at the intersection between the personal and the collective. Findings have indicated that work or employment cannot only be conceived for individual or personal benefits. It is therefore imperative and necessary that guidance professionals take into consideration the issue of social justice in their professional activities, in order to better address collective needs.
