The concept of 'Decent Work' was introduced by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and is based on the idea that work is a source of personal dignity.
- Work ensures that people can provide for the needs of their families with respect to safety and health.
- Work enables them to send their children to school;
- Work also ensures income when they become ill or after they retire.
- Work in which they are treated fairly and where their rights are respected.
