Le ultime frontiere della precarietà
From a historical point of view, job insecurity is a structural feature of the wage condition. The uninterrupted growth and the increasing stabilisation of the working conditions that the West has experienced from the ’50s to the ’70s are to be considered as an exception limited in space and time. This paper shows how the neoliberal globalisation of capitalist social relations, which has caused a process of structural casualisation of labour, has put an end to this ‘exceptional period’. Moreover it illustrates how the policies adopted to counteract the effects of the crisis erupted in 2008 are bringing out new forms of precariousness.
