by Davidson, Jacqueline | Great Britain. Department for Work and Pensions.

Publisher: Sheffield, U.K. Great Britain. Department for Work and Pensions 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Great Britain. Department for Work and Pensions research.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Appendices pp. 55-83 Bibliography pp. 84-86 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: There has been much emphasis on increasing the employment rate in the United Kingdom (UK) in recent years and policy has increasingly been geared towards increasing the labour market participation of people with traditionally high rates of non-employment, such as disabled people. The introduction of the Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) with increased conditionality can be seen as an attempt to get more disabled people into work and participating in work-related activity, which raises questions about employment opportunities in the labour market for disabled people. For example, it is already known that people can face discrimination in employment recruitment procedures according to age, gender, ethnicity and disability and research has highlighted that disabled job applicants may be discriminated against when compared to non-disabled applicants with similar skills and experience.Availability: (1)

Indigenous self-employment : miracle cure or risky business? /

by Hunter, Boyd | Australian National University. Centre for Aboriginal conomic Policy Research.

Publisher: Canberra Australian National University, Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research 1999Description: PDF.Other title: Australian National University. Centre for Aboriginal Policy.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 1999 Includes bibliographySummary: Running a business, or otherwise being self-employed, is one avenue for economic advancement for Indigenous people. However, employing oneself or others is a complex process with many potential pitfalls. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, where globalisation and instantaneous information processing have increased the mobility of consumers and producers alike, Indigenous businesses have to be increasingly sophisticated to compete. Not only do they need to manage financial risk, but also fluctuating markets require a truly worldly outlook with adequate access to collateral and social networks. In this context it is not surprising that the Indigenous population continues to have a very low rate of business formation. This paper provides a profile of the Indigenous self-employed in Australia using data from the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Survey and recent censuses. It uses this profile to discuss issues raised in the international literature on race, ethnicity and self-employment.Availability: (1)
