How Segregated are Australian Workplaces? Evidence from the Australian Industrial Workplace Relations Survey
AbstractThis paper provides evidence on the degree of gender segregation in Australian workplaces using the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey. The paper finds that the extent of horizontal workplace gender segregation fell significantly over the 1990 to 1995 period. In terms of vertical segregation, the paper examines the degree to which internal labour market structures apply to workplaces and considers the way in which women and men are positioned within workplace hierarchies and their potentially differentiated experience in respect to movements up career ladders, promotions, and the attainment of managerial positions. The paper finds that the internal labour market structure operates in Australia but at a weaker level than previously assumed. It operates much more strongly for men than for women.
