Informal workers in Argentina: from the construction of collective identities
to the constitution of organizations?

Abstract : This dissertation focuses on the relationship between social identifications and labor organization forms among workers at different types of markets--fruit and vegetable, craftsmanship, clothing and random products--in La Plata, Argentina at the beginning of the XXIst century. This study describes the dependency network in which workers are inscribed; it explicits the identitary references used by individuals to position themselves against the "other". It shows that each type of market has predominant identitary references that relate to different spheres articulated in the markets. It also recounts the different forms of labor organization developped by workers. Finally, it demonstrates that the organizations that have identitary forms proceeding from spheres that are not strictly professional are those that obtained the greatest degree of involvement from their workers.
