Human labour is now reduced to a minimum and detached from the combination of individual and firm. Globalization - with the phenomena of relocation, of obsession with the reduction of labour costs, of the prevalence of finance on the economy, the exploitation of people who have migrated from their places of origin and the explosion of insecurity - not has effectively depleted the reality of work as the source of our life. The new organization of work requires a greater capacity for mental work with a high knowledge content, variable bearing on stage that combination of individual company we want today declassified. The insecurity reduces not only membership in the work setting, but also participation in social relationships, and the significance of the identification and citizenship: from this point of view, job insecurity is likely to turn into a social exclusion. Resulting phenomenology, but not a substitute for these trends, is the increasing difficulty by temporary workers to organize themselves in ways of sharing the discomfort and possible projects of emancipation. It is urgent - according to the research data presented - retrieve a work culture that can testify to the civil and human significance: the risk of failure of this perspective is that the uncertainty is not limited to the shredding of the economic system, but also affect on construction of the idea of self, the ways and the ways in which the self comes to mind.
