A PICTURE OF THE AUSTRALIAN LABOUR MARKET

Over recent decades significant economic and social changes have altered the way in which work is organised and carried out in Australia. Examples of major changes include:

  • an increase in labour force participation
  • labour market deregulation
  • the rapid growth of part-time employment
  • an increase in casual employment
  • changes in the hours worked by Australians
  • trading hours liberalisation, and
  • anti-discrimination legislation.

    The following section includes further information on how Australia's labour market has changed over time. More specifically, it includes information on: the proportion of the population in work, labour force participation, part-time employment, casual employment, hours worked, and earnings.
