The present paper discusses, from the peculiarities of dependent capitalism in Brazil, the genesis of the “social question” in the state of Rio de Janeiro. In the first two parts, we present some historical specificities of the Brazilian transition to capitalism in the middle of the 19th century and the changes in the pattern of capital reproduction of exporting agricultural for the industrial sector in the state of Rio de Janeiro. In the third, we analyze the struggle of the subaltern classes against the overexploitation of labor.
