"Freedom, Republicanism, and Workplace Democracy"
by Breen, Keith (2015)
This article explores the republican case for worker voice in economic enterprises based on the ideal of freedom as non-domination and assesses its merits relative to two influential arguments for workplace democratization grounded on freedom understood as autonomy and self-determination. Two claims are advanced. The first is that the republican case for worker voice avoids difficulties associated with these two arguments. The second, however, is that the ideal of non-domination is insufficient and that an adequate understanding and defense of workplace democracy will also have to make significant reference to freedom understood as autonomy.
