Before New Labour 21 Besides, although in the early 1980s Labour sought to widen access to the labour market for those who wished to enter it, this can be seen as simply extending the range of options available to those who would otherwise be receiving benefits, rather than suggesting that receiving benefits was in any way inferior to paid employment. Labour did not, at this time, see benefit receipt as being in any way demeaning or creating dependence. H. Marshall’s idea of social citizenship, access to social security benefits was seen as a sign of citizenship and of full status within society.

While the Labour Party, and indeed much of society as a whole, continued to subscribe to traditional ideas of family responsibilities based on the importance of the single (male) breadwinner, and while employment for the ‘breadwinner’ workforce could be maintained at levels high enough effectively to eliminate any longterm unemployment, there was no apparent reason to try to bring people outside that workforce into the labour market. Indeed, to have expanded the workforce by encouraging the participation of, for example, spouses or people with disabilities, might have imperilled the ability to maintain the levels of ‘full’ employment.

As mass and long-term economic inactivity had increased, growing numbers of (male) former workers had had to rely on means-tested rather than insurance-based benefits. This had two effects. First, there was little or no incentive for the unemployed to take part-time or other ‘non-standard’ work unless they could be sure that it would lift them entirely off benefits for a substantial period – otherwise, benefits would simply be withdrawn in direct proportion to the amount earned. In addition, the certainty of income which continuous receipt of full benefits provided would be disrupted, with potentially serious effects for those on low incomes.
