Marxist - social policy

View mindmap
  • Marxist - social policy
    • See the state and its policies as serving capitalis
      • e.g. low level of state pensions as evidence that workers too old to produce profits - maintained at lowest cost
    • Do not accept there is a steady march of progress
      • Argue that improvements for WC  families such as pensions/free healthcare only won through class struggle to extract      concessions    from capitalist class
      • FUNCTIONALISTS - would disagree as see policies as benefiting all members of the family
      • FEMINISTS  - Marxists ignore the detrimental effect of family policy on women
