February 2010 Bibliography : p. 34-36 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This report sets out arguments for a much shorter working week. It proposes a radical change in what is considered 'normal' down from 40 hours or more, to 21 hours. While people can choose to work longer or shorter hours, we propose that 21 hours, or its equivalent spread across the calendar year, should become the standard that is generally expected by government, employers, trade unions, employees, and everyone else.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A portrait of child poverty in Australia in 1995-96

by Harding, Ann | University of Canberra. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Szukalska, Agnieszka.

Publisher: Bruce, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1998Description: 32 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Paper presented at the 6th Australian Institute of Family Studies Conference, Melbourne, 26 November 1998.Summary: In Australia, as in many other developed countries, there has been growing concern about increasing income inequality and a possible accompanying increase in poverty rates. One of the areas of greatest concern is children and how poverty impacts on their well-being (both mental and physical). In this paper the latest ABS income survey data are used to assess the extent of child poverty in Australia in 1995-96. The analysis suggests that most children in poverty in Australia are in that situation because one or both of their parents is unemployed, a sole parent, self-employed or one of the ‘working poor’.

by Hamilton, Clive | Denniss, Richard.

Publisher: Crows Nest, N.S.W. Allen & Unwin 2005Description: ix, 224 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: This book is a critique of the western world s addiction to over-consumption. The authors pose the question: if the economy is doing so, why are Australians not becoming happier? They argue that people focus too much on what they lack. Hamilton and Denniss explore the messages of consumerism and marketing, and the effects of debt, overwork, waste and over-spending. In the final section they propose a refreshing alternative political philosophy, based on a commitment to improving well-being rather than mere accumulation of wealth.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The study had two main aims: first, to examine the benefit and activation policies in other Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries which are most effective in assisting partnered women into work; and secondly, to assess the transferability of these policies to the British context. The research examined reforms in Australia and Denmark and concentrated on policies and programmes focusing on lone and partnered parents (Australia) and married couples (Denmark). The paper considers the key policy components from the two case study countries and offers a number of possibilities for policy transfer and translation.Availability: (1)

Are lone mothers responsive to policy changes? : evidence from a workfare reform in a generous welfare state /

by Mogstad, Magne | Institute for the Study of Labor | Pronzato, Chiara.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2009Summary: There is a heated debate in many European countries about a move towards a welfare system that increases the incentives for lone mothers to move off welfare and into work. We analyze the consequences of a major Norwegian workfare reform of the generous welfare system for lone mothers. Our difference-in-differences estimates show that the policy changes were successful in improving labor market attachment and increasing disposable income of new lone mothers. By contrast, the reform led to a substantial decrease in disposable income and a significant increase in poverty among persistent lone mothers, because a sizeable group was unable to offset the loss of out-of-work welfare benefits with gains in earnings. This suggests that the desired effects of the workfare reform were associated with the side-effects of income loss and increased poverty among a substantial number of lone mothers with insurmountable employment barriers. This finding stands in stark contrast to evidence f! rom similar policychanges in Canada, the UK, and the US, and underscores that policymakers from other developed countries should be cautious when drawing lessons from the successful welfare reforms implemented in Anglo-Saxon countries.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
