    The home support sector, considered as a potential pool of jobs by the public autorities, has a reputation for offering insecure and low qualified jobs. From a descriptive work grouping together social partners trying to reduce this job insecurity and from a monographic work on the sector, we have adopted a segmentationist approach to the job market and propose a dualistic reading of job insecurity in this specific business sector. After having shown the multidimensional aspect of job insecurity, we demonstrate why home-support jobs can be analyzed by the yardstick of secondary job markets. On this basis, we then analyze the variety of secondary-market types together with the stakes that access to an upper segment of the secondary market would represent in this sector. This stakes include a possible decrease in the number of job insecurity situations.
