1. Cárdenas Tomažič, Ana Ida. the case of the teleworkers.

Degree: 2010, Freie Universität Berlin

Social exclusion in the Chilean labor market and the integration of highly qualified workers: the case of teleworkers The aim of this dissertation is to critically discuss the social exclusion approach by analyzing the transformation of the Chilean Labor Market and the expansion of so-called “precarious work.” This refers to non-standard employment relationships characterized by short-term, non-contract regulated and non-social secure labor conditions. To date, this transformation process has been studied from the perspective of social exclusion, which focuses on the flexibilization processes of labor legislation and the reorganization processes of firms. This analytical perspective seems to provide a partial explanation of the changes taking place in the Chilean labor market in recent last decades, by conceptualizing individuals as observers and receptors of such processes and analyzing their labor market participation patterns according to a unique “social inclusion model.” This dissertation assumes that the expansion of precarious labor conditions is not just the result of structural changes, but also of transformations occurring at a more subjective level. This becomes especially evident when considering the case of high-qualified workers in Chile who telework from home. According to the Sociology of Work, traditional industrial homeworking is often carried out by female low-qualified workers and is characterized by precarious labor conditions. This apparently contradictory trend is a central focus of this dissertation. The research is guided by “the subject-oriented perspective” (subjektorientierte Perspektive) and is centered around the concept of “biographical integration work” (biographische Integrationsarbeit), a term developed for this dissertation based on the theoretical foundations of two subject-oriented concepts: "the conduct of everyday life" (alltägliche Lebensführung) and “biographical life coping” (biographische Lebensbewältigung). On the basis of semi-structured interviews, this study empirically reconstructs the synchronic and diachronic integration patterns of 18 teleworkers to different life spheres (work, family and education) vis-à-vis their biography. The main results of this dissertation challenge the social exclusion perspective in relation to how teleworkers construct, manage and give meaning to their biography and everyday life in terms of autonomy and security, according to their gender, age and familial relationships.
