The social construction of labour market: the embeddedness of mobile work In this essay the author firstly focuses on main characters of non-standard employment relations with particular regard to independent subcontractors; secondly, he considers the role of family in helping work insertion for its members, protecting them from job instability. The rising of informal professional communities composed by contingent workers is also analysed as it enhances the creation of social devices to deal with employers. Finally, it is highlighted how institutional interventions could reduce instability of nonstandard workers. The thesis proposed by the author is that the lack of universalistic interventions and the simple activation by non-standard workers of their social network, produce new discriminations caused by unequal access to these resources and different degree of protection guaranteed by the social and institutional context.
