UNDERSTANDING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PRECARIOUS WORK AND SLAVE LABOR IN BRAZIL - 10.12818/P.0304-2340.2017vBIp245
The main goal of the article is to comprehend the definitions of precarious work and degrading work conditions as a type of slave labor. We intend to ascertain the phenomenon of the “precarization” of work and of the subject of the worker, treated as disposable merchandise by the capital holders who, becoming consistently stronger, determines the localization of his factories according to the fragility of the State, of the Labor Law and of the social movements. He settles in regions where work is so precarious that at times it seems to confuse itself with the concept of degrading conditions for purposes of characterizing as slave labor. In this regard, the article intends to identify and conceptualize the phenomena of “precarization” and of slavery, differentiating them and delimitating them, demonstrating that the discourse of those who approximate them is part of a rhetoric built by the neoliberal capitalist ideology present in the current Toyotist production system.
