“Working today: changes, permanencies, strategies, reinventions”

The purpose of this dossier is to enter the universe of professional occupations that arise or are reconfigured as a result of recent changes in the worlds of work, whether those are leveraged by the intensification of the use of new technologies or driven by certain economic, social and political configurations. If, in an optimistic view, these changes were perceived as indicative of a move towards new levels of civilization, paradoxically, what can be seen is the predominance of trends that echo with a past of overexploitation and absence of rights that were believed to be moving towards its substitution.

Such dilemmas are present, for example, in occupations whose work is mediated by digital technologies and platforms. According to the dossier published in 2018 by this magazine, focusing on the occupations thus characterized, the effects of the various forms of digitalization on real work are complex. It should be added that what could, at first sight, mean an advance towards more attractive or community work content, is often experienced with high psychological and physical costs, which may contribute to the weakening of labor protection and to the social precariousness process. Atypical and informal work, now presented as the flexible working relationship par excellence, is also at the center of the debate. The interest of this dossier is to know the strategies of resistance and appropriation of the activity by the worker.

In this context, it is also necessary to show how unions have positioned themselves in this context, how they are reacting to changes in work today and what new action strategies have emerged.

We still have to understand how, in this complex scenario, the relationships between work, gender and race have been taking place, in their intersectionality, attentive to the signs of changes and continuities. In this thematic field, the articulation between professional and domestic work takes on relevance, as well as professional domestic work in the midst of a broad scenario of deregulation of work.

In this difficult time we are living, produced by fear, suffering, limitations and the multiple changes generated by covid-19, we understand that research that considers its impacts on the worlds of work will also be opportune.

Therefore, we seek to promote the debate between the macro and the micro, privileging the analysis of real work situations. To this end, it is proposed to access: the complexities inherent to work situations today, the new skills required, the developments or involutions that are taking place; how health is involved in this process; the challenges that arise and how they are faced. Contributions are encouraged that present a diachronic perspective, based on research that has closely followed the changes that have occurred.
