Mapping the world of casualised work and struggle in South Africa

The core contextual backdrop that frames this project is the radical and ongoing recomposition of the broad working class, both globally and within South Africa.

A central part of that recomposition has, over the last 20-30 years in particular, consisted of a major shift from a mainly permanent and largely industrial working class base to one where a majority of workers in the private sector, and a growing portion of those in the public sector, are now casualised and where large-scale/heavy industry no longer dominates the working landscape.
