Why is employment important?  

Work is an important part of peoples' lives!  It provides a regular paycheck and stability in many ways.  Work can provide friendship.  It can help a person maintain a positive identity and self-worth.  Work makes people happier.  People who work tend to: meet people and expand their social networks; feel productive and valued; develop new skills both work and non-work related; transfer learned skills into other areas of life and build a foundation to advance their future goals.  People who are employed tend to be happier and healthier than people who are unemployed.
