The increasing segmentation of the labour market and the growth of differences between insiders and outsiders has been a major concern for the academic literature and, more recently, the public debate. Rarely, however, the driving forces determining such phenomena have been analysed or questioned. In particular, the role of employers’ strategies in producing segmentation has been substantially neglected. Still, corporate practices such as vertical disintegration have been strongly associated with the growth of bad jobs and of insider/outsider divides. This paper discusses these issues exploring how the organisational practices of organisations from the public and private sector have contributed to produce inequalities among the workforce involved in their activities. Thereby we will argue that it is necessary to place employers’ strategies into the debate on inequalities and labour market segmentation and that policies targeted to improve job quality and reduce bad jobs should focus not only on the supply side of the labour market, but also on the demand side.
Keywords: Vertical disintegration, inequalities, employers, working conditions
