Michael, I’ve also written on this topic. The key, I think, is to understand that jobs are different from work.
Jobs involve labor that generates high enough market value goods or services to support the worker with a living wage.
Work is useful labor that does not produce goods or services that can be sold to consumers for enough money to pay the worker a living wage. The shortfall between the price of the goods/services and the living wage needs to be covered by gov’t subsidies to the non-profit corp employers who manage the work.
