Submission to the Australian Fair Pay Commission /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Anglicare Australia.

Publisher: Brotherhood of St Laurence and Anglicare Australia 2006; Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Anglicare Australia 2006Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2006 Includes bibliographical references (p. 11)Summary: The relationship between wage levels and employment in the short termis uncertain There are some in the community who are urging the Commission to consider reducing the real value of the minimum wage over time in an attempt to stimulate low-skilled employment. We believe that this policy response is likely to have a negligible effect on employment and will hurt low-paid workers overall. Empirical evidence from other OECD countries fails to show a clear relationship between minimum wage changes and employment, and a number of studies have found no effect or only negligible increases in employment after increases in the minimum wage (see Dowrick & Quiggin 2003; Gregg 2000; Hyslop & Stillman 2004; Lemos 2004; Stewart 2002; Watson 2004) We understand that the Australian context differs from many of the countries studied in these references, such as the US and the UK. Australia is a country with one of the highest minimum wages in the OECD. However, the results do indicate that minimum wages and employment are not necessarily inversely related. We feel that there is a need for further research examining this relationship in the Australian context. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

The impact of the global financial crisis on social services in Australia /

by Access Economics.

Publisher: [Canberra, A.C.T.] Access Economics 2008Description: 30 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: An issues paper prepared by Access Economics for Anglicare Australia, Catholic Social Services Australia, The Salvation Army and UnitingCare Australia. Family & early years School to work Into & out of work Retirement & ageingSummary: The current global financial crisis and its likely impact on the Australian economy will have an acute impact on the most disadvantaged members of society, as well as pushing increased numbers of low and middle income earners to seek the services of welfare agencies. Even during the recent period of buoyant economic conditions, agencies were reporting growing demand, and the emergence of a new clientele of mid-stream wage earners facing severe financial stress. This has been mirrored by academic research into new indicators of disadvantage. Instability in the financial sector and its flow-on effects to the rest of the economy, can only exacerbate these problems, putting an even greater strain on what are already overstretched social services." -- Executive summaryAvailability: (1)
