The future of work /

by Jackson, Sue | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The way in which we organise, distribute, value and reward work is fundamental to the way we live and the kind of society we fashion for ourselves. It is crucial in determining circumstances for ourselves and our families. Work determines our material well being, opportunities for meaningful social interaction and our health and emotional well being. In broad terms it determines our quality of life. Work generates particular patterns of social and economic power, of inclusion and exclusion, of privilege and disadvantage. In short, our approach to work is important in determining whether we have a fair, inclusive and cohesive society, as compared to one which is dramatically polarised between winners and losers. In Australia, as in other advanced industrialised nations, fundamental social, technological and economic changes are having a major impact on the organisation and distribution of work.

Publisher: unpub. 1978Description: 35 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: 'September 1978'; September 1978. ARC started in 1972 at the Brotherhood of St Laurence as The Family Centre Project. Action and Resource Centre (ARC) for low-income families opened in 1972 on a self-management basis, taking over from the Family Centre and continuing the Family Centre Project philosophy - 'low-income people need a voice and an organisation where they can help other low income people'. With 95 member families, fifteen members of the Family Centre were employed as resource workers. The ARC's Support Work Program (SWOP) provided employment for men who had been out of work for some time. The formal agreement between the BSL and the Action & Resource Centre was signed on 28 July 1976, the first step towards autonomy for the project.(BSL timeline)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
