Abstract

A new class-in-the-making is emerging worldwide: the Precariat. A growing army of workers displaced in the globalized era, with no security, control over their time, nor hope for their future. Often threatened by precarity and poverty traps, they represent a new group of people in need of a charter of demands, according to Guy Standing, author of A Precariat Charter: From Denizens to Citizens. This book follows his previous success on the same topic; it is a thought provoking and resolute challenge to the widespread consensus around neo-liberal policies, writes Elisa Pannini.
