They are also tantamount to the worst forms of child labor, as defined in the
International Labour Organization's Convention 182, which Egypt has not yet
ratified. Children were forcibly recruited to take part in pest management as
recently as ten years ago, and some farmers continue to believe that they will be
fined if they resist their children's recruitment. However, most children today are
compelled to work by the driving force of poverty. The children's task for the
cooperatives is to aid ...

“What allows migrant workers to be used as a 'cheap' and largely unprotected
labor power are not any inherent qualities of the people so categorized but,
rather, state regulations that render them powerless” (Sharma 2000: 8). This
statement raises the question of how these repressive state regulations can be
justified among policy makers, within the state bureaucracies, and to the
electorate. Images of migrant workers must be constructed to justify denying
international migrants high ...

Human Rights Watch learned that a corporate permit holder, who is a farmer as
well as a labor contractor and labor consultant, had applied for a work permit for
a Zimbabwean migrant who did not work for him, and passed on to the worker
almost the full price of a corporate permit application. As noted above, the cost of
the application is independent of the number of corporate workers requested,
and currently costs R1,520 (US$215); the corporate permit is valid for three years

I. Introduction A long tradition views the roughly 40% of LDC labor forces that are
unprotected by labor legislation and working in small "informal" frrns to be the
disadvantaged segment of a dual labor market.1 The origins and dynamics of this
sector have attracted renewed interest for at least two reasons. First, increasing
labor market efficiency and flexibility is considered an essential complement to
the market-based reforms underway throughout the developing world.2 To the
degree ...

Crafts and service workers were unable to escape the chronic vulnerability that
resulted from labor-intensive production and lack of factor accumulation. Masters
had little surplus to reinvest in productivity-raising mechanization because of self-
exploitation. Moreover, where hands and bodies of journeymen and laborers
were so cheap and unprotected, labor- squeezing strategies were chosen in
preference to the risks and expenses of mechanization. Whatever its costs, this
was a ...

For the same reason, refusal to work overtime is unprotected, even if the workers
are protesting excessive overtime assignments (unless a labor contract allows
workers to refuse overtime). As mentioned in chapter 2,* a worker who refuses to
cross a picket line is engaged in protected activity. If that picket line is part of an
illegal strike, however, the worker who refuses to cross the line is out of luck: she
is unprotected, just as the strikers are. Workers participating in a legal strike can
lose ...

These points about political influences leave an unsettled picture. The Fordist
model led to social welfare and strong unions, but the lean production model
looks like it promotes neo-liberalism, inequality, and disciplined and low paid
global workers. It appears to be like a globalized corporatist welfare system for a
tiny portion of the workforce, and an unprotected privatized system reliant on
charity and voluntary associations for the largest number of citizens. The large
secondary labor ...
