The problem is that their definition of security is not consistent with the present situation on the labour market. Still S and LO stick to their traditional work-related definition of security, which does not include the new global class: the precariat. Guy Standing and Roland Paulsen criticizes the traditional labour movement’s way of facing the growing uncertainty and insecurity, because of their incapability to cope with the insecurity of the European labour market, and their failure to acknowledge anything else than the employment security and the growing unemployment. Standing and Paulsen contribute with an alternative way of looking at security, which is more compatible with the flexibility that has come to characterize our globalized world. (Less)
