Studenteropgave: Speciale


This master’s thesis is a study of how industrial, temporary agency workers may achieve a better working life through communities of acting. Collective communities and collective political mobilisation, based on Søren Juul and John Kelly, is discussed as the theoretical basis. The empirical part of the study is performed through qualitative studies of temporary workers at three Danish companies. We conclude that temporary workers, being excluded from the communities of acting that the permanent employees benefit from and individually being too insecure in their employment, have poor conditions for acting. Despite the fact that the temporary workers experience collective problems, a collective paralysis, which is based on individual anxiety, arises. To change this situation the proper conditions must be created, enabling the temporary workers to establish collective goals and providing security to act.
