Eterocronia e marginalizzazione di un gruppo di operai siciliani

Tommaso India


Through an ethnographic research conducted with a group of Sicilian workers employed in logistics, this paper analyzes the progressive social marginalization of these workers. Such marginalization was imposed through the creation of company time-maps that found their initial act in transferring the group analyzed from Palermo to Catania and the total coincidence between leisure time and work time. The creation of these time-maps and their affirmation and acceptance by the group of workers, due to their disgruntled strength and their ability to interfere with the lives of the workers covered by this paper, form an act of economic reasons and an act that also has a political value as it directly affects the social and existential organization of workers.
