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).

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)

The relationship between housing assistance and labour market behaviour is a key concern of policy makers. In fact, a guiding principle of the current agreement between the federal and state governments concerning the provision of housing assistance programs is the need to ensure that 'housing assistance supports access to employment and promotes social and economic participation' (Commonwealth-State Housing Agreement 2003, Schedule 1). The analysis provides evidence on this link by considering how current policy settings influence labour market outcomes for participants in housing assistance programs." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

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)
