Employment impacts of climate change mitigation policies in OECD : a general-equilibrium perspective /

by Chateau, Jean | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development | Saint-Martin, Anne | Manfredi, Thomas.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2011Description: PDF.Other title: OECD Environment working paper ; no. 32.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 28-29Summary: Using a computable general equilibrium, this paper quantifies the GDP and employment effects of an illustrative greenhouse gas emissions reduction policy. The paper first analyses the direct negative economic effects of the emissions restrictions on GDP and examines labour sectoral reallocations in a framework where labour markets are perfectly flexible. The model is then modified to incorporate labour market imperfections in OECD countries that could generate unemployment, namely, short-run rigidities in real wage adjustment. It is shown that imperfect wage adjustment increases the cost of mitigation policy since unemployment increases in the short-run, but that the carbon tax revenue generated can be recycled so as offset some or all of this effect, notably when it is used to reduce wage-taxes. Thus, taking realistic labour market imperfections into account in a CGE model affects the GDP costs of mitigation policy in two ways: first by introducing extra costs due to the increased unemployment that such policy may entail; second by creating the possibility of a double dividend effect when carbon taxes are recycled so as to reduce distorting taxes on labour income.Availability: (1)

Global employment trends for youth 2012 /

by International Labour Organization.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland International Labour Organization 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2012 Bibliography : p. 39-41Summary: The economic crisis abruptly ended the gradual decline in global youth unemployment rates during the period 2002-07. Since 2007 the global youth unemployment rate has started rising again, and the increase between 2008 and the height of the economic crisis in 2009 effectively wiped out much of the gains made in previous years. Globally, the youth unemployment rate has remained close to its crisis peak in 2009. At 12.6 per cent in 2011 and projected at 12.7 per cent in 2012, the global youth unemployment rate remains at least a full percentage point above its level in 2007. Nearly 75 million youth are unemployed around the world, an increase of more than 4 million since 2007. Medium-term projections (2012-16) suggest little improvement in youth labour markets. By 2016, the youth unemployment rate is projected to remain at the same high level.Availability: (1)

Green gold rush : how ambitious environmental policy can make Australia a leader in the race for green jobs. /

by Australian Conservation Foundation | Australian Council of Trade Unions.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Australian Conservation Foundation and 2008; Australian Council of Trade Unions 2008Description: HTML.Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: "The ACF and ACTU jointly commissioned this research to explode the myth that strong action on climate change will destroy industries and jobs. The reports states that Australia could become a leader in certain green industries, generate up to 850,000 green collar jobs by 2030 and multi-billion dollar export opportunities, but action is needed now. The report identifies six green collar industries with great potential for growth and development: renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable water systems, biomaterials, green buildings and waste and recycling. How Australian governments choose to respond to these challenges and opportunities will have a dramatic effect on the profile of Australia s future workforce." -- ACF websiteAvailability: No items available

The future of work in Australia : dealing with insecurity and risk : an ACTU options paper on measures to promote job and income security /

by Australian Council of Trade Unions.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Council of Trade Unions 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Working Australia paper : no. 13/2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: The risk shifting from businesses and governments onto workers has effects far beyond the workplace and even the household. It also damages communities and the social fabric of Australian society. Financial insecurity and uncertainty over working hours has a debilitating effect on workers? capacity to find time for relationships and for rest time, leisure and activities outside work. Without knowing when they will next work, workers struggle to stay connected with their communities and to participate in activities such as getting involved in their children?s school or playing in the local sports team. The rise of insecure work presents significant challenges to Australian workers and their unions. Unions are faced with the challenge of responding to the massive transformations that have occurred in the world of work and developing workplace standards that meet the legitimate aspirations of Australian workers to decent and secure jobs and that are appropriate for a modern, prosperous, internationally competitive market economy.Availability: (1)
