Australia Institute’s Centre for Future Work

A new ACTU report states poor pay, a lack of hours and employer responses to the pandemic are driving insecure work. Paul Oboohov reports.

Centre for Future Work senior economist Alison Pennington talks about the economic implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and alternatives to austerity and deregulation.

The ACTU's under-reported National Economic Reconstruction plan is a chance to push hard for 1 million well-paid and sustainable jobs. Sue Bull argues that unions need to unite and campaign for it.

A new report by the Australia Institute’s Centre for Future Work says there is a "close statistical relationship" between a dramatic reduction in industrial activity and stagnation in wages.

Its research shows there has been a 97% decline in industrial action from the 1970s to the present, which has weakened the bargaining power of workers.
