Abstract

Despite the widespread industrial relations reform of the last decade, little attention has been paid to the plight of groups traditionally disadvantaged in the labour market—including Indigenous people. The Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey (AWIRS) 1995 is the first data set that permits a direct examination of firms that employ Indigenous Australians. One disturbing finding is that many workplaces with Indigenous employees appear to have chosen the ‘low-wage’ strategy. The fact that such workplaces are more likely to pay award wages indicates the importance to Indigenous people of ensuring award minimums remain current, and that enterprise bargains do not become the sole means of altering wages and conditions.
