    Abstract

    Since the 1960s, substantial increases in unemployment, female participation and employment, part-time employment, and persons working long hours have produced a wider distribution of work between individuals in the Australian labor market. A widening distribution of work between income units and households has also occurred. The effect on the distribution of earnings and 'well-being' is considered. The case for work-sharing policies to reduce unemployment and create a more even distribution of work is rejected. Labor-market deregulation combined with a negative income tax system may be a way of increasing employment without creating a substantial 'working poor.'
