Underemployment and poverty in Australia

Last month saw the publication of the fourth edition of “Thinking about Poverty”, edited by Klaus Serr, La Trobe University.

The book examines aspects of poverty and inequality in Australia from theoretical and empirical perspectives.

In their contribution on “Un(der)employment, Poverty and the Future of Work after the Global Financial Crisis”, SACES Senior Research Fellow Dr Andreas Cebulla and University of New South Wales Professor Ilan Katz describe how a rise in insufficient demand for labour following the onset of the GFC, reduced chances of jobseekers to regain equivalent jobs after retrenchment, and low replacement rates of social security allowances create conditions of sustained poverty risk.

The book is published by The Federation Press.
