This book is the first to meld cross-time with cross-country comparisons, link macro structures to micro behavior, and connect class with gender dynamics to yield fresh insights into where we are on the road to gender equality, why it varies across industrialized countries, and the barriers to further progress.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

He said, she said : the gender wage gap according to self and proxy reports in the current population survey /

by Reynolds, Jeremy | Wenger, Jeffrey.

Publisher: Athens, GA University of Georgia 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2011 Bibliography pp. 38-40Summary: Roughly half the labor force data in the Current Population Survey (CPS) are provided by proxy respondents, and since 1979, men's reliance on proxies has dropped dramatically while women's reliance on proxies has increased. Few authors, however, have examined how combining these first-hand and second-hand reports may influence our understanding of long-term economic trends. We exploit the outgoing rotation group structure of the CPS by matching individual records one year apart, and we find that self-reported wages are higher than proxy-reported wages even after controlling for all time invariant characteristics. Furthermore, we find that changes in the use of proxy respondents by men and women since 1979 have made current estimates of the gender wage gap larger than they would have been without changes in reporting status. This suggests that the gender wage gap has closed more than previously estimated. We recommend that researchers combine self and proxy responses with great care, especially when analyzing time trends or making gender comparisons.Availability: (1)

Less income inequality and more growth : are they compatible? : Part 1. Mapping income inequality across the OECD /

by Hoeller, Peter | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development | Joumard, Isabelle | Pisu, Mauro | Bloch, Debbie.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2012Description: PDF.Other title: OECD Economics Department. Working paper ; no. 924.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: ECO/WKP(2012)1 10 January 2012 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Countries differ widely with respect to the level of labour income inequality among individuals of working age. Labour income inequality is shaped by differences in wage rates, hours worked and inactivity rates. Individual labour income inequality is the main driver of household market income inequality, with family formation as well as self-employment and capital income dispersion playing a smaller role. Household disposable income dispersion is lower in all OECD countries than household market income inequality, due to the redistributive effect of tax and transfer systems, but redistribution differs widely across countries. This paper maps income inequality for all OECD countries across various inequality dimensions and summarises them in inequality outcome diamonds. It also provides a cluster analysis that identifies groups of countries that share similar inequality patternsAvailability: (1)

It finds that 'being a woman' was the single largest reason for the gender pay gap (60%). This includes complicated factors such as women's choices of careers, jobs and work hours, consideration of caring responsibilities, women's work motivations, bargaining power and appetite for risk, as well as discrimination against women that occurs in the workplace. Other contributing factors such as industry segregation and labour force history impact on the gender pay gap.Availability: (1)

Up to the job /

by Knell, John | DEMOS | Philpott, John.

Publisher: London, U.K. DEMOS 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 37-38 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: In the wake of the global recession, unprecedented cooperation between employers and employees helped British workplaces adjust relatively well. This led to fewer of the mass redundancies that had characterised previous recessions, but there are still severe consequences to the economic downturn: wages are stagnant, unemployment is high. One result has been a worrying shift in business rhetoric, which lobbies for lower labour costs and deregulation. Up to the Job argues that policy-makers can play a key role in shaping the culture of work in the UK, first by not rolling back years of progress on employment regulation and second by highlighting why the productive workplace should be seen as an important component of the Government's civil society agenda, the Big Society. It uncovers a mixed picture, but enough to indicate that Britain has a significant 'work problem', which diminishes both economic performance and general wellbeing. The pamphlet argues that employers must recognise that fostering insecurity is not a sustainable management tool. Labour markets cannot become simply 'hire and fire' without having a damaging effect on workplace performance. If employers can no longer offer the level of economic security that is expected of them, this needs accommodating in some other way, through greater employee engagement. Only then will the UK have a labour market that is up to the job.Availability: (1)

Valuing care in Australia : achieving pay equity in the social and community services sector /

by Allebone, James | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne 2011Description: p. 14.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 15.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography : p. 12-14Summary: In the context of an historic Equal Remuneration Case, this paper argues that the low pay endemic to the social and community services sector in Australia is primarily the result of the sector's volunteer past and highly feminised character, and represents a serious undervaluing of care. In the likely event that Fair Work Australia grants a substantial award increase, state and federal governments must subsidise additional costs for employers in this vital sector. Broader questions about welfare provision are also raised.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
