Where to start? Inventorying and organizing existing resources. Defining, identifying and describing. I could use a few more hands.
Instead of narrowing my focus, I have expanded it from precarious faculty to precarious workers across a range of categories from temp work and migrant labor to academic labor and creative culture work. In between extremes lie contract labor, low wage work, work in the service economy, unpaid interns, tech and other knowledge workers. All are insecure, without benefits and usually lower paid than equally (and sometimes less) qualified full time workers for the same employers or working in the same field. Precarious workers, whatever their area or presumed status, are insecure, fungible, disposable, voiceless -- and often invisible or might as well be.
Why? Because categories overlap, working conditions and causes are not unrelated.
