The share of Australian job postings using family-friendly or flexible language is high by global standards, sitting well above the United States and a raft of European countries.
The Australian unemployment rate dropped to an almost six-year low in July, while wage growth posted its strongest quarterly gain since March 2014.
Employment growth in Australia has eased in 2018, reflecting modest gains in full-time jobs. Wage growth continues to disappoint. However, tax cuts and a boost to the minimum wage could provide some much-needed relief to Australian households.
