Restructuring often results in significant downsizing of labor. When this occurs a negative social reaction can slow and/or stall restructuring. There are economic, social and political objectives for providing social support packages to workers displaced by restructuring and privatization. Social support programs should include elements that combine to "pull" and entice excess labor to leave overstaffed enterprises, while at the same time helping "push" and assist displaced workers to quickly rejoin the labor market. These measures usually include both temporary income support and active labor programs. To be effective the measures must be carefully designed and targeted, and social monitoring of displaced workers should be an integral part of the programs to ensure the services are reaching the most needy workers.
