Unemployment is the experience of the man [sic] who has succumbed to the Protestant ethic. Leisure, according to Weber, is necessary for man [sic] to be able to work. For Aristotle, work is necessary for man [sic] to have leisure. (Illich, 1973a, p. 67) For young adults, both female and male, ‘not in employment, education or training’, there is little in existing norms to legitimise having an ethic that commits them to capital accumulation (Boltanski and Chiapello, 2007; Weber, 1992; 2002).
