The author illustrates the concept increasing employment in the form it took in the Netherlands. To the author it refers to work undertaken to increase employment for the government or subsidized by it. After placing employment in the whole of the complete employment policy of the government, the various kinds of supplementary works are described. The historical development of supplementing employment in the Netherlands up to then is clearly reflected. A separate chapter formulates the standards which supplementary employment must reach. The author gives seven criteria. The project must not evoke unemployment somewhere else. The benefit has to be as high as possible. The work has to be purposeful to the labourer too. The influence on private investments has to be as favourable as possible. The import-quota must be small. The biggest possible variety of unemployed has to be taken up. Speeding up, delaying or stopping of the work or a part of it has to be possible. Further a number of rules are given as financial justification. The author thoroughly analyses the method of subsidy. The execution of the works is also reviewed in detail.
