Decent sustainable work for all in a global economy : submission to the Independent Inquiry into Insecure Work in Australia /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2011 Bibliography : p. 37-40Summary: A comprehensive reform agenda can deliver growth for Australia through a more productive and engaged labour force which better meets employer needs; increased participation and advancement in paid work for all workers; and reduced levels of social exclusion. This is sustainable growth with inclusion. The growth of casual, contract and insecure work is one outcome of long-run trends in the Australian economy. But it is not the only outcome. Our assessment shows that the labour market is also characterised by stubborn levels of workforce underutilisation, and significant levels of marginal attachment and exclusion from paid work. These trends are not short-term or cyclic effects of economic downturns such as the current GFC. Thirty years ago, the underemployment rate was only 2.6%. The present underutilisation rate (12.6%) of the labour force represents over 1.5 million Australians of working age. In addition, there are over 800,000 Australians with a disability - many of whom with the right form of assistance could gain paid employment.Availability: (1)

Hidden unemployment in Australia. /

by Australian Council of Social Service.

Publisher: Strawberry Hills, NSW Australian Council of Social Service 2003Description: 48 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 47-48) November 2003Summary: This paper argues that the official unemployment figures published each month tell only part of the story of unemployment, and that if hidden unemployment were included in the statistics, the unemployment rate would double. It explores some limitations of the official figures in measuring the extent of significant social and economic disadvantage, and sets out a method for estimating the number of hidden unemployed people.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

Insecure work, anxious lives : the growing crisis of insecure work in Australia /

by Australian Council of Trade Unions.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Council of Trade Unions 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2011 Bibliography : p. 22Summary: Australia has experienced strong and sustained economic growth for most of the last three decades. Our economy continues to perform relatively strongly, especially when compared to many other developed nations. At the same time, the Fair Work Act has restored many rights at work and is promoting fairer and more productive workplaces. But not all Australians are sharing in the benefits of our national economic prosperity. Profits as a share of national income are at a record levels, while the wages share is at a 40-year low. Australian unions are deeply concerned that growing numbers of workers are engaged in work that is unpredictable, uncertain and that undermines what ordinary Australians need to feel secure in their lives and their communities. Casual jobs, short term contracts and other insecure forms of work are on the rise. Secure jobs are getting harder and harder to find.Availability: (1)

Underemployed workers are part-time workers who want, and are available for, more hours of work than they currently have and full-time workers who worked part-time hours during the reference week for economic reasons. A range of information is presented on underemployed workers including the number of hours usually worked, number of preferred hours, steps taken to find work with more hours, and difficulties finding work with more hours." -- [Publisher website]Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
