Centre for Sustainable Organistions and Work 2016 Seminar Series: A review of labour market inequality in Australia
This seminar will present an overview on labour market inequality in Australia. It will combine new descriptive information on inequality with a review of the existing Australian literature on this topic.
The first part will review evidence on changes in earnings inequality and the main causes of those changes. The second part will describe changes in the distribution of employment and hours.
The third part will assess how changes in labour market inequality have impacted on income inequality in Australia. The fourth part considers labour market outcomes for specific groups – females, immigrants and the Indigenous population.
