The author compares several inquiries about precarious labour in France and Europe since 1993. At this time, a huge majority of all jobs were considered as « stable » when only 8% of all working contracts were clearly precarious (the so called « bad jobs »). Today, these distinction is no longer as significant as it was, for the stable contracts are hiding precarious working situations including stress and other forms of social pressure.

Notre société est traversée par de grandes inquiétudes, et le sentiment d’insécurité est devenu, depuis quelques années, un sentiment dominant. Par exemple, pendant l’épisode électoral d’avril 2002, la défaite de Lionel Jospin et le succès au premier tour de Jean-Marie Le Pen se sont joués dans une large mesure sur cette question de l’insécurité. Depuis, le gouvernement dont nous avons hérité, avec Monsieur Sarkozy en particulier, a fait de la question de l’insécurité une priorité, voire sa priorité. Il faut prendre au sérieux cette inquiétude généralisée, car elle est populaire, au sens fort du mot, et elle en dit beaucoup sur l’état de notre société.
