by Madden, Kelly | Anglicare Tasmania.

Publisher: Hobart, Tas. Anglicare Tasmania 2003Description: 95 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2003 Summary: The qualitative component of this research indicates that unemployed people had a strong preference for permanent employment, placing a very high value on the paid entitlements and sense of security. Many of the participants had extensive experience of casual work but this had not led to more permanent employment. This research indicates that the distinct categories of ‘unemployed’ and ‘casual worker’ which emerge from static accounts of the labour market would be much more accurately conceptualised as a cycle, with a sub-group of people moving between casual work and unemployment on a very regular basis.Availability: (1)
