Abstract

This text narrates the journey of marginalised workers trying to live more dignified lives and to remove the unjust structures which are preventing them from developing fully as human beings.
The story is told in three parts which are all related:
1) description of the economic and social context to which the Confederation of Popular Economy Workers is responding;
2) outline of the Confederation’s vision for transformation;
3) account of the Confederation’s actions to realize its vision.
We hope that the story of Argentine popular economy workers can inspire other excluded workers to come together to transform or create economic structures which provide the conditions for workers and their families to live fulfilling human lives.
