Its Full-Time Jobs That Matter - Round Table Discussion
Robert Gregory ()
Australian Journal of Labour Economics (AJLE), 2002, vol. 5, issue 2, 271-278
The conference spent too much time discussing unemployment. The two key labour market problems are the lack of full-time job growth and the rapid growth of all welfare recipients. Unemployment is just a small part of the structural problem in the Australian economy. For the perspective of full-time job growth and the growth of welfare recipients current labour market policies are failing. But it is not clear what to do short of a much more radical approach to policy.
