Transitions to market models have had an important impact on the structure of the labor market and on structures of interest representation of the working classes in Latin America. They have produced pressure for a more flexibiized labor market and a shift within the working classes from the formal to the informal sector. This study analyzes the way conditions of informality affect the capacity of informal workers to engage in problem-solving activities around both materialist issues and political problems.
