The added worker effect and the discouraged worker effect for married women in Australia. /

by Gong, Xiaodong | Australia. The Treasury.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. The Treasury 2010Description: 37 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: )Summary: This paper investigates both the added worker effect (the labour supply responses of women to their partners job losses) and the discouraged worker effect (workers withdrawing from the labour market because of failed searches) for married women in Australia, with the emphasis on the former. We focus on the partners' involuntary job loss experiences, and analyse women's labour market activities in the periods before and after their partners' job loss. By estimating fixed effects labour supply equations using the first seven waves of data from the HILDA Survey, we find a significant added worker effect in terms of increased full time employment and working hours. The findings also suggest that it is harder for the female partners of males who have recently lost jobs to enter the labour market than for those already working to increase their working hours to compensate for lost income incurred by their partners' job loss. We also find the effect to be persistent in that, one year after the partners' job loss, more of those women would still like to work longer hours than they actually were. By investigating the relationship between self‑assessed job‑finding probability on job‑seekers? subsequent labour force participation, and by studying the relationship between labour force participation of all married women and the regional unemployment rate, the paper also finds a substantial discouraged worker effect. ; HOUSEHOLD, INCOME AND LABOUR DYNAMICS IN AUSTRALIA SURVEY (HILDA)Availability: (1)

Does the persistence of gender and class inequalities refute the notion that lives are becoming more individualized ? Leading international authorities document how gender inequalities are changing and how many inequalities of earlier eras are being eradicated. However, this book shows there are new barriers and constraints that are slowing progress in attaining a more egalitarian society. Taking the new global economy into account, the expert contributors to this book examine the conflicts between different types of feminisms, revise old debates about ?equality? and ?difference? in the gendered nature of work and care, and propose new and innovative policy solutions.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Labour force participation of mature age men in Australia : the role of spousal participation /

by Mavromaras, Kostas | Rong, Zhu.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany IZA 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2013 Includes bibliographic referencesSummary: In this paper we estimate the interdependence of labour force participation decisions made by Australian couples from 2001 to 2011. We focus on couples with a mature age husband, and estimate the interdependence of the participation decision of the couple. We find that the decision of a wife to work or not influences positively, and in a causal fashion, the decision of her husband to work or not. In our paper we use counterfactual analysis to estimate the impact of the increasing labour force participation of a wife on her husband's participation. We find that the increased labour force participation of married women observed between 2002 and 2011 has been responsible for about a 4 percentage points increase in the participation of their mature age husbandsAvailability: (1)

Gender experiences during the COVID-19 lockdown : women lose from COVID-19, men to gain from stimulus

by Richardson, David | Australia Institute | Denniss, Richard.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T : Australia Institute, 2020Description: 12 p. : ill. PDF.Other title: Gender experiences in the lockdown.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: June 2020Summary: The health response to COVID-19 has resulted in large increases in measured unemployment and underemployment as well as large falls in the total number of hours worked. While the size of these labour market effects has been widely discussed, the gender distribution of these impacts has not. While an examination of the male/female employment share of the industries that have been hardest hit by the health response to COVID-19 suggests that men should account for a disproportionate amount of job losses, in fact women have have seen faster job losses than men. Despite the fact that women have borne a disproportionate share of the recent increase in unemployment the stimulus measures announced to date have tended to disadvantage casuals (where women are overrepresented) and been focused on specific industries such as construction (where women are underrepresented). In order to examine the likely impact of different stimulus measures on men and women this paper provides male and female employment multipliers for each industry. Our results show that for every million dollars spent on new construction spending only 0.2 direct jobs for women will be created while a million dollars spent on education is likely to create 10.6 jobs.
