BNew Developments in the Australian Labour Market in 2006




Type Of Work


  • Scholarly edition

Abstract


  • 2006 generally represented a solid year in terms of macroeconomic

    performance and labour market indicators, even under the threat of increasing

    inflation and interest rates. However, some favourable aggregate labour market

    indicators disguised major disparities at disaggregated regional, sectoral or

    demographic levels. The major development in the labour market was the

    implementation and operation of the WorkChoices legislation which will shape the

    industrial relations landscape in Australia for many years to come. This article

    presents an analysis of the performance of the macroeconomy and labour market, and

    reviews the developments of the WorkChoices legislation.
