Power, Violence and Justice in the Labor World: The Youth at the Front Scene. Joint Session II/II

Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 10:30-12:20
RC30 Sociology of Work (host committee)

Language: English

The younger generations are further affected by the transformations of labor market. Their entry into the workforce is done in a context of inadequate labor laws, of flexibility in management and employment practices, as well as in an increasing impact of new technologies and breakdown of work collectives. The insertion processes become demanding in terms of qualification and skills, experience and evaluation of their individual capacities. Young people are strongly affected by new employment statutes (temporary, part-time, self-employed, interim workers), precariousness, insecurity and informality. These changes influence the different sequences of the career path (access to employment, work practice, career) with divers effects according to the social and personal characteristics of the young people. They can result in a loss of power over oneself, in a need to adapt, to submit to ongoing trends or, on the contrary, in a gain in autonomy that allows them to get around obstacles or put strategies in place. Within the organizations, young people are subjected to power relations, leading to different forms of violence either directly or indirectly, or on the contrary, to a strengthening of their position. Similarly, their different situations in the labor market can create feelings of injustice (intra and intergenerational), generating dissatisfaction, frustration, anger or deviance. We invite you to cross the axes of the general call (power, violence, justice) and to apply them to the field of work (RC30) and youth (RC34), under the approach of career paths or of their overall life situation.
