The role of welfare and activation policies
Abstract:Australia has an excellent record in terms of school‐to‐work transition, as several indicators of Chapter 1 suggest. For some youth, however, the first steps after leaving school are still characterised by the experience of unemployment synonymous with spells of income support (or inactivity). There is also some evidence of repetitive use (churning) of income support among unemployed youth.
