The economic crisis begun in 2008 has resulted in a worsening of conditions of all components of precarious workers. Multiple attempts of organization and subjectivation of such components have occurred so far. In this paper the author reports and analyses the experience of the committee «our time is now», that, between 2011 and 2012, has tried to gather many of these components. The committee involved several associations of precarious workers, CGIL (italian left trade union), students’ associations and youth associations of lefty parties. Moreover, the network has fostered and organized a national day of mobilization about job precariousness, asking for substantial changes in policies concerning work, social security, welfare, right to education.
