    Project Details

    Project Description

    The project concerns the management of Australian labour supply, considering, in particular, prospects for longer working lives against the backdrop of demographic change and the global restructuring of industry. It will approach the issue from multiple, interlinked, perspectives, considering the relationship between worker, firm and national actions, while contextualising these in terms of the global reconfiguring of industry. It will: explore labour supply dynamics and determinants pertaining to older people; examine employer behaviour, confronting ageing workforces and increasing global competition, with regard to managing labour supply; and examine the behaviour of national governments concerning the maintenance of labour supply.
