The rise of agentic job perceptions is a first-rate indicator of the 'good' jobs that empower the people and make our societies better places to live. Job development is to create good conditions for these jobs, especially through investment into education and education systems. Often, this means breaking people free from social cohesion patterns that chain their initiative and restrict their agency as autonomous individuals. Under increased agency, social cohesion will be reshaped from group-clientelism toward voluntary commitments.
