Blue collared : the shrinking world of work in Tasmania /

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)

Does combining school and work affect school and post-school outcomes? /

by Anlezark, Alison | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Lim, Patrick.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography p. 29 Appendices pp. 30-52 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In this report the authors seek to answer the question of whether combining school and work is detrimental or beneficial to a student's school educational performance and labour market outcomes. They find that young people who combine school and work are distributed right across the school population. Results show that individuals can combine school and work with minimal impact on their study if the hours are modest and those working longer hours show a stronger orientation towards work than study. The authors used data from the 2003 cohort (Y03) of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth.Availability: (1)

European Company Survey 2009 : part-time work in Europe /

by Eszter, Sandor | European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and orking Conditions.

Publisher: Dublin, Ireland European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 45-46 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Non-standard employment and, more particularly, part-time work has been increasing worldwide for the past two decades. This trend has been especially strong in Europe, where the issue of different working time arrangements is an important part of the discussion among policymakers and social partners, and something which the European Union (EU) has promoted to increase flexibility for workers and employers. However, part-time work is spread very unevenly across Member States, reflecting differences in legislation, infrastructure and cultural conventions. This report uses data from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey and the second Company Survey. An executive summary is available.Availability: (1)

Evidence and perceptions of inequality in Australia. /

by Chesters, Jenny | Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy esearch | Western, John.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Centre for Economic Policy Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2010Summary: Following the increasing impact of globalising economic forces world wide Australia, like many other liberal democracies, moved to adopt neoliberal economic policies with an emphasis on increasing deregulation of economic markets. The economic changes instituted since the 1980s have fundamentally restructured the economy and created a more flexible labour market. Jobs growth has been concentrated in industries that rely heavily on casual and part-time workers. Consequently, the proportion of all jobs that are permanent and full-time has declined. In this paper, we are interested in how these changes have affected the level of income and wealth inequality within Australian society. Although there is a general agreement amongst researchers that there has not been a significant increase in inequality in regard to either income or wealth between the 1980s and the 2000s, some researchers argue that earnings inequality has increased. There is also evidence of a mismatch between objective measures of inequality and the perceptions of the Australian people, with a significant majority of respondents in a national survey conducted in 2005 believing that Australia had become a more divided and less fair society since the 1980s. The present paper examines these disparities and attempts to account for them.Availability: (1)

From risk to opportunity : labour markets in transition /

by Ziguras, Stephen J | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Hancock, Linda | Considine, Mark | Howe, Brian.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: 17 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: March 2004 Includes bibliographical references SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The ‘From Risks to Opportunity: Labour Markets in Transition’ project aims to respond to the social and economic circumstances of the 21st century by drawing on a range of researchers across Australia to develop new policy directions based on the concept of transitional labour markets (TLMs). It is funded by a two year Australia Research Council (ARC) Linkages grant and led by Prof. Mark Considine and Prof. Brian Howe from the Centre for Public Policy and Associate Prof. Linda Hancock from Deakin University, in partnership with the Brotherhood of St Laurence, CEDA and the National Institute of Economic and Industry Research (NIEIR). This background paper describes the significant social and economic changes over the last three decades which have rendered traditional policy assumptions obsolete. It then describes the notion of transitional labour markets which could form the basis for a new approach to policy more in tune with contemporary social and economic circumstances.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).
