Unemployment Australia

In general, unemployment serves as a scourge in almost all nations across all economic development levels. Logically, loss and scarcity of jobs bring about despair and poverty.


Unemployment is blamed for hampering of children’s development and incurrence of conflict at home and all social fronts.

Market economies experience unemployment from dynamic establishment, growth, slowing down, and death of companies.


In the past years, Australia unemployment had been directly influenced by technological changes, world market integration, intense competition, and massive global economic situations.



Unemployment, for decades, has been a nag, an intense problem in Australia. The existence of unemployment is just a proof that the concept is a precise one.

Australia Unemployment

It could not be totally eradicated in countries like Australia because most goods and services production are conducted through formal economy. Most people work mainly for wages.


The Australian Bureau of Statistics has constructed measures to gauge both underemployment and unemployment. Underemployment runs when jobs available are not appropriate and commensurate for the skills and qualifications of workers. It could be considered slightly better than unemployment, but to experts, the two have equal demoralizing impact to employees.

ABS regularly releases monthly data for unemployment, which has become one of the significant factors in measuring local and national economy. Unemployment scourges Australia and other Western economies. Boom and recession business cycles lead to high and intractable unemployment.

In logical and obvious circumstances, unemployment rises during periods of recessions, as many businesses and firms shut down, close, or restructure. In the 1990s until the onset of the 21st century, Australia successfully avoided substantial recession, thanks to good macro-economic management, sound policies, and sheer luck. But these days, it seems that the country will not be spared from the global economic crisis, just like all other countries in the world.

The country’s unemployment rate is expected to shot up to record levels during the end of 2009 until 2010. From there, economists and analysts are still uncertain whether unemployment will drop as a result of hopefully improving global economy. Many Australians are starting to feel the crunch. With many job losses and financial situations declining, many families are displaced from homes, many mortgages are defaulted, numerous employment opportunities scrapped. There are employments rising, but this time, favor is granted much more to technical and skilled workers (who also are contented at lower salaries), mostly coming from third world countries.

Until global economies improve, expect the crunch to continue. High jobless rates mean there will still be scarcity in liquid flows and local consumption of goods and services will keep retarded. Almost all industries are feeling the impact. It surely is not the best time to lose or leave jobs. Experts advise Australians, and just about anyone, to hold on to their employment until the financial nightmare globally is finally over.
