 TAP: Vol 12, Iss. 19. Full Employment at Risk. Jared Bernstein and Dean Baker.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Aside from that, at full employment the number of workers seeking jobs matches up neatly with the needs of employers; the supply of labor and the demand for it are in equilibrium, and the available labor force is fully utilized.
The most important result of all this labor-market tightening is that these employment gains translated into higher wages and incomes for broad groups of working-class families who had seen their incomes stagnate over the previous few decades.
In some ways, employment rates--the share of the population employed--are more revealing than unemployment rates, because the former also capture how a tight labor market draws in people who were formerly not even looking for work (and thus not counted among the unemployed).

 Road to full employment - The Washington Times: Commentary - December 19, 2004   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
If employment growth between now and the end of next year is at the low end of the probable range, rising at a modest 1½ percent annual rate, it may be enough to halt the downtrend in labor force participation, but probably not enough to increase it much.
Were employment to increase at the 2 percent rate, and the participation rate responded strongly by three-tenths of a percentage point yearly, it would still take until late 2008 to achieve an unemployment rate in the low 4 percent range.
Employment growth in the middle of the probable range, averaging about 200,000 a month, with only a small rise in labor force participation, would lower unemployment modestly, to 5.1 percent a year from now.

 ILO - China: Prospects for full employment - Thomas G. Rawski
The biggest contributions on both sides of the ledger: steep employment growth in township-village (TVE) enterprises, large contributions of private enterprise to incremental employment, flight from farming, and, most recently, mass urban layoffs, are unanticipated consequences of reforms that did not target employment or labour markets.
During the 1980s, formal employment absorbed half of the labour force increment, with new positions in TVE firms and in urban formal employment each equivalent to roughly one-fourth of the labour force increment.
Urban bias is another historic component of Chinese public policy that permeates the entire economy, accelerating the population shift from villages to towns, forcing urban communities to respond to the pressure of successive waves of migrants, and exacerbating tensions between newcomers and privileged urban residents.

 A Full-Employment Recession, Eh?
So, if the labor market numbers are to be believed, Rhode Island recently attained full employment largely as the result of its residents having to go out of state for jobs.
A year ago, the most recent data indicated that payroll employment had been falling (year-over-year) for every month since May. The conventional wisdom back then was that Rhode Island was in a recession that it would have been unable to escape in 1996.
I expect to see both payroll employment and the unemployment rate to be revised upward, and resident employment to be lowered.

 Employment Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The theory, set forth by economist John Maynard Keynes, contends that unemployment is caused by insufficient aggregate demand relative to the possible aggregate supply generated by full employment.
The original bill, called the Full Employment Bill of 1946, was introduced in the House as H.R. 2202 and introduced without change by Congressman Wright Patman in the Senate as S. The bill represented a concerted effort to develop a broad economic policy for the country.

 Full Employment and Monetary Policy
The full significance of this success can only be appreciated if one takes into account the vehemence of the pro-inflationist propaganda of university teachers and of "progressive" politicians and journalists.
The weakness of the small group advocating sound monetary policy and fighting all inflationary measures is their disinclination to attack the "full employment" doctrine openly and directly.
Certainly there are men with the courage to risk their careers or even their personal safety by criticizing the "full employment" doctrine.

 Full Employment and Affirmative Action
Recent political attacks on the aims and practices of affirmative action in employment have sought to mislead working class opinion with the claim that the pressures on white men stem from the unfair employment of minorities.
When nineteen million people who desire employment aren't able to get it, along with millions more who don't earn enough to bring them and their families above the poverty line, an environment of political scapegoating and social hostility is created.
This is why the advocates of affirmative action must carefully link their struggle for social justice with efforts to achieve full employment.

 FULL EMPLOYMENT AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
Traditional approaches addressing either unemployment or environmental degradation are insufficient to achieve full employment or environmental sustainability, and often proposals to attain one of these goals appear inconsistent with the other.
The traditional approaches to promoting full employment range from mainstream neoclassical prescriptions based on the view that unfettered markets will tend to full employment on their own to mainstream Keynesian and Post Keynesian approaches that emphasize demand management via fiscal and monetary policy.
Keynes demonstrated that the neoclassical view of the macroeconomy was flawed and the economy does not tend to full employment, even under competitive conditions (although Keynes also rejected some of the assumptions of the neoclassical model, such as perfect knowledge).

 Determination of high unemployment rate changing - Jun. 19, 2003
While the rate was nearly a nine-year high, it still was a far cry from the 7.8 percent peak it hit after the 1990-91 recession and the nasty 10.8-percent peak it hit in 1982.
In fact, 6 percent unemployment was -- in the early 1990s -- considered by many economists to be "full employment," or labor-market nirvana, the level at which the economy was growing strongly, but not so strongly that it fueled inflation.
"The full employment situation reinforces itself," said former Labor Department economist Jared Bernstein, now with the Economic Policy Institute and co-author of a recent book, "The Benefits of Full Employment," which urges policy makers to aim for much lower unemployment.

In the 1930s and 1940s, Keynesian visions of full employment and Beveridge-inspired ideas of a universal welfare state grew up in about the same intellectual environment.
