New jobs, new conditions: the rebuilding of the laborer group in France between 1982 and 2012

Groupe des Écoles Nationales d'Économie et Statistique - PALAISEAU - 2016

Many sociologists have studied the work conditions of industrial laborers. However, few have analyzed the consequences of the shift towards the tertiary sector, and the ensuing rebuilding of the working class. We will conduct a macro analysis of the changes brought to the laborer group in France, and a finer one for those working in warehouses in particular, as these jobs have seen the strongest increase during the past 30 years.
