A characterized model by processes of flexibility in the production process and the acquisition of workforce. In this context, outsourcing is considered by many researchers, the leader of the precariousness of work and that is present in public and private companies. Added to outsourcing processes, we have employment contracts part time, temporary services, subcontracts, it also occurs a growth in unemployment and the out of rules of the working class.
