The crisis which currently affects western countries forms part of a metamorphosis that continues to upset the capitalist system with truly tragic consequences for the most deprived social groups and society as a whole. In recent years it has been broadly agreed that this crisis includes a combination of economic, social, cultural and environmental issues that are inextricably linked. This observation is progress as traditional analysis presupposed that the key components behind the crisis were economic and triggered by events overseas, such as international competition and economic openness. However, academic commentary rarely addresses the crisis from the point of view of work (or the workers) and such analysis remains in the shadows as the approach is deemed controversial. Yet, the approach cannot be ignored, at its very foundation this crisis is a crisis about work; the same concept occurred previously during the Industrial Revolution.
