The ways of being of informality: towards a new era of structural precarious work?

As a result of the transformations and metamorphoses in the capitalist countries, we are facing an intense and significant process of making the working class informal and precarious. The aim of this article is to understand the ways of being of that process, its reasons, as well as its connections with the law of value. In opposition to the statement related to the end of work, we find out an expressive precarious and informal character of work, which occurs as partial, subcontracted and precarious work.
