​The Precariat and Class Struggle By Guy Standing

Abstract: The world economy is in the midst of a Global Transformation that
is producing a new global class structure. A new mass class is emerging –
the precariat – characterised by chronic uncertainty and insecurity.
Although the precariat is still a class-in-the-making, divided within
itself, its elements are united in rejecting old mainstream political
traditions. To become a transformative class, however, the precariat needs
to move beyond the primitive rebel stage manifested in 2011 and become
enough of a class-for-itself to be a power for change. This will involve a
struggle for redistribution of the key assets needed for a good life in a
good society in the twenty-first century –not the “means of production”,
but socioeconomic security, control of time, quality space, knowledge (or
education), financial knowledge and financial capital.​
