This book explores the historical significance of Federation and the impact it has had on working life in Australia. This collection of essays, from Australia's leading labour historians, identifies the formative influences on working life in the period 1890 -1914, and how national policy development affected the working culture of this nation. Organised around key themes, this book draws together innovative research on employer-employee relations, the role of the state, wages and arbitration, gender, race, culture and individual experience.
