he United Nations, which marked a “World Day of Social Justice” on Sunday, Feb. 20, is calling for a “new era” in which all the people of the world have access to basic services and “decently” paying jobs.

In his message urging “social justice for all,” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, “No one should live below a certain income level, and everyone should have access to essential public services such as water and sanitation, health and education.”

Delegations from all 183 ILO member nations are scheduled to meet in June to draw up a long-term strategy for establishing a “social protection floor.”
