Casuals now fill 17pc of jobs: survey

By Mark Lawson

The major trend towards the "casualisation" of the workforce is accelerating with casual and contract workers now filling 17 per cent of all jobs, according to a recent survey.

The survey by employer group Drake International across all sectors of the Australian economy this year (1998) found that 17 per cent of all workers were casual or contract workers, compared to a figure of 11.6 per cent established by a survey in 1993.
