The Nordic Social democracy is a mix of multiple ideologies with historical and traditional roots. These ideologies interpret labor and welfare in different ways. New financial challenges emerged in the 1980s in the Nordic States (such as aging population globalization etc.). With this increase in costs, and trough the presence of ideological ambiguity, recommodifying policies such as the Arbeidslinja have been implemented. This thesis, first, shed light on problems arising from the implementation of Arbeidslinja from perspective of social work. Second, this thesis interpreted hermeneutically the various ideologies of the Nordic welfare state, and finally, this thesis presented an ideologically unifying ethical ulterior solution in the form of Negative Income Tax to the Nordic Welfare States.
