Income inequalityInequalityWho is affected?

Almost two-thirds (62%) of Australia’s adult population are employed: the majority in full-time paid work (41%), but also a significant portion (21%) in part-time jobs. Just over one-third (34%) of the adult population are not in the labour force ( mainly younger and older people), while 4% of the total adult population (as distinct from the labour force) is unemployed.
