Özet

In common with many other countries, Turkey is encountering a labor crisis. Further, and again in common with other countries' experiences, this crisis is a function of trends in job insecurity, problems of workplace health and safety, de-unionization, unemployment, subcontracting, and the degeneration of identity and solidarity that occurs because of precarious employment. This study investigates the unique political, cultural, and economic factors within Turkey that combine with global labor issues analyzes the shape and size of the Turkish labor crisis, and discusses the most critical, urgent issues including the status of subcontracting workers. The roles of social, cultural, economic, and political dynamics in the labor crisis are distilled and explored.
