Full Employment and the
Job Guarantee with
Dr. Victor Quirk

2.30pm – 4.30pm, Saturday the 15th of February, 2020
Kathleen Syme Library, 251 Faraday St, Carlton

Join us for a presentation by Dr. Victor Quirk about what the implementation challenges of the MMT Job Guarantee proposal are and how might they be addressed.

Are the challenges of implementing the proposal the reason why the major parties have ignored a policy that claims it can deliver full employment without inflation, or is there something else to it?

Government’s make the poor seek non-existent jobs and resist efforts to protect the environment because jobs are more important, yet deny people have a right to work. How come?

Dr Victor Quirk, labour market political sociologist and research associate of the Centre of Full Employment and Equity, (CofFEE) will discuss the operationalising of the job guarantee and the history of opposition to full employment.
