The way in which we organise, distribute, value and reward work is fundamental to the way we live and the kind of society we fashion for ourselves. It is crucial in determining circumstances for ourselves and our families. Work determines our material well being, opportunities for meaningful social interaction and our health and emotional well being. In broad terms it determines our quality of life. Work generates particular patterns of social and economic power, of inclusion and exclusion, of privilege and disadvantage. In short, our approach to work is important in determining whether we have a fair, inclusive and cohesive society, as compared to one which is dramatically polarised between winners and losers. In Australia, as in other advanced industrialised nations, fundamental social, technological and economic changes are having a major impact on the organisation and distribution of work. [Extract]
