Life, health and work: a discussion about quality of work life in a scenario of precariousness

Milton Athayde Jussara Brito About the authors

With this article, we intend to discuss the text written by Padilha, a basis for debate on this issue of the magazine, and embrace the challenge of discussing some of the issues that emerge from the referred article. In this same movement we took the opportunity to point out some of our positions on the issue. We began by prioritizing the urgent need for a critical and affirmative perspective of the power of life in relation to the very frequent and powerful impediments and constraints (such as the process of turning the work in progress precarious), the subject of our second topic. To conclude the discussion, we briefly focus on the process of emergence of the issue of 'Quality of Life' and then the so-called 'Quality of Work Life' (QWL), and finally discussing what it is.
