GRASSI, Estela. The normality of labor, normal jobs and working lives: reasons to work. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2009, vol.12, n.2, pp.226-234. ISSN 1982-0259.

How do people work and live today and what are the reasons that motivate doing so? This paper presents a hypothesis, using as a reference formally instituted employment, as determined by labor legislation, a modality that does not exhaust the fact that most people "live to work," regardless of the consideration that their abilities receive. It uses the idea of normality, distinguishing it from the level of the structural principals (work as an amalgam of society), from that which corresponds to legality, which in turn flows from the normalities of the lives of work. It looks at the "reasonable reasons" that people use when they make decisions about their concrete lives and work, in the context of the recent reconfigurations in the sphere of labor, highlighted by greater uncertainty and the demand for greater availability. In this situation, the interests and needs of the subject and the demands of that sphere are issues that people and families must resolve as "private issues."

Palavras-chave : labor; normality; norms [reasons]; family needs; career-interest.
