Consigning future generations to social immobility?

In The Guardian (22.8.14) Jim Chalmers argues that judged on their decisions to date, 'we now have a government that sees inequality as an objective to be met, not a challenge to be overcome'.  'The unemployment rate in Australia was lower than in the United States every single day of the Rudd-Gillard governments, but higher just before Labor was elected and soon after it was defeated. This was a largely-ignored but key takeout from the recently-released labour force data for July, which saw the Australian rate tick up to 6.4% while the US’ dropped to 6.2%.'
