The article focuses the attention on the consequences that the economic crises could produce on the meaning and significance of work. Basing on a sort of “mirror” approach, it describes the results of some researches on unemployed workers in order to evidence the strong relationship among unemployment, unstable employment and irregular employment; between paid work and non paid informal work, between “bad jobs” and “good jobs”. Then it focuses the attention on the concepts of quality and dignity of work, emphasising the strict link between the quality of work and the quality of life. Some concluding remarks about the envisaged policies are developed in the final part of the article.
