Social and economic Security for Democracy

Economic security is essential for the successful working of democracy. The people should be given the right to work and it is the duty of the government to provide them with suitable employment. In case, the government is unable to provide it to the people, it should at least provide them with shelter, clothing and food. Besides, social security is also essential.
Now a days, the government fixes hours of work, salary, bonus, paid holidays and compensation for fatal accidents in order to save the laborers from exploitation by the capitalists. The government should provide social security to the people in case of their being disabled due to old age, illness, accident or any other cause. Without this provision, democracy shall be considered useless. People in Russia have full social security. In India, too, some concrete steps have been taken in this direction.
