Work for the dole: A myopic policy failure

    Research output: Other contribution

    Abstract

    It is a tragedy that Work for the Dole has become the centerpiece of the Australian Government’s employment policy. The program flies in the face of decades of accumulated evidence about what constitutes effective labour market programs and the necessity that they be accompanied by a jobs generation strategy.
