Subject outline

In this subject students will examine the experience of work in Australia from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century. A major theme will be the rise of the labour movement and the growth of state regulation of the labour market through the introduction of wages boards and federal arbitration, and the response of conservative political parties to the growth of labour. How the experiments of the 1890s and 1900s developed over the course of the century - through booms, depressions and wars - is also examined.
