Vingt ans de trajectoire après un licenciement collectif. Ouvrières et ouvriers


  • Christian Trotzier


Adapted from life stories and phone interviews, the study is interested in the way that male and female workers have come during twenty years as made redundanted in the beginning of 1980 at Schirmeck, a small town located at forty five kilometers from Strasbourg. In the majority of women, there is long-term professional destabilization. There are numerous instable ways. Retreats of professional life one the one hand permanent for the olderes, on the other hand temporary for mothers with young children, are the rule. In an economic deteriorated context sociodemographic features influence the return to a paid-job but also “the choice” of very little linked to the technical competences new jobs. On the contrary the men are less disadvantage by the economic conjonture and less submited to the private life constraint. They follow mainly professional determinated ways. The level of salaires has nevertheless often been called into question. Cherching for better remuneration generates an inter-companies mobility which for the women is more consequently precarious employment.
