|Title:||Deregulation, Macroeconomic Restraint and the Break-up of Employment||Contributor(s):||Smith, GO (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/802||Abstract:||The paper argues that a conservative aggregate demand management stance combined with an ideologically-driven agenda of labour market deregulation has seriously weakened the bargaining position of Australian labour. Employment has become increasingly contingent and contextualised and is characterised by significant dispersion in pay, unpreferred hours of work, and intensification of work regimes. The current push for primacy of individual contracting adds a significant new dimension to these forces making for the break-up of employment. The terms have certainly been set for an important struggle in the history of Australia's workforce.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||7th Path to Full Employment Conference & 12th National Conference on Unemployment, University of Newcastle, 8-9 December, 2005||Conference Details:||7th Path to Full Employment Conference & 12th National Conference on Unemployment, University of Newcastle, 8-9 December, 2005||Source of Publication:||Creating a Culture of Full Employment: Refereed Papers from the 7th Path to Full Employment Conference & 12th National Conference on Unemployment, p. 384-390||Publisher:||Centre of Full Employment and Equity (CoFEE), University of Newcastle||Place of Publication:||Newcastle, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||140299 Applied Economics not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://e1.newcastle.edu.au/coffee/conferences/2005/
