Australia's “‘wage-earners’ welfare state” policy highlights the state dominance and the benefits enjoyed by workers, leading to a relatively open intergenerational mobility pattern, which is different from other capitalist economies such as the United States. Australia's intergenerational mobility model has implications for China, and the comparative analysis between China and Australia has become a significant research direction.
