The author of term “precariat” will answer the question if the world handles the big economical crisis. Will there be enough workers in the Western countries, as some experts claim, or there will be too many people without jobs? What kind of political views so called ‘precariat’ has? How to organize precariat for political actions? Or maybe more efficient are still political parties and social movements?
