Labor relations in contemporary capitalism has undergone significant changes, whose significance for social organization has been deeply determinants. The size of this importance can be seen in everyday life, in the process of transformation of the environment has been fostered in an ever more intense. This has contributed to intensify the degree of disposability of contemporary production, characteristic of the capitalist social formation. This disposability is not only the goods produced, but also of the worker, because a considerable portion of the working class has become dross, and the recycling material pickers are entered into this process. It is also a noticeable restructuring of the space from the creation / renovation of productive activities, which appear as responses to the needs of building and rebuilding of a new geography of labor under the capitalist social formation in the nineteenthcentury. Appears significantly also a new technical division of labor, which has at its core the spatial scaling of the working classes. This respatialization piecemeal work, ensures a lower resistance to exploitation and therefore maintaining the profitability of capital. Thus, we have several ways to absorb labor force in ways increasingly precarious as in the productive chain of recycling. There is thus of reproduction a lumpenproletariat situation that materializes in territories increasingly precarious. This instability, occurs mainly by loss of the ability of the working classes to control the dynamics of production/ social reproduction. Large portions of the working classes are then robbed even of their right to life. We are experiencing an extreme dehumanizing reality of the work, and collector expresses quite clearly this process.
