REYNA GARCIA, Víctor Hugo. Ulrich Beck and Job Malaise. Sociológica (Méx.) [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.95, pp.93-124. ISSN 2007-8358.

Although he began his career as a sociologist of work and had a labor turn in the late 1990s, Ulrich Beck’s influence on labor studies is limited. However, several labor scholars argue that his conceptual framework can contribute to the renewal of this field of knowledge. Following their logic, this article establishes a link between Beck’s labor theory and labor studies, with emphasis on literature on workplace stress, burnout and turnover intentions. The aim is to outline a theory of job malaise in contemporary society.

Keywords : labor studies; job malaise; workplace stress; burnout; turnover intentions.
