'the class of the new'. This model workforce announces a new economic and
social paradigm, constituting a 'social prophecy' of the shape of work to
come. Their mode of being and, in particular, of producing, is set to become
hegemonic. No matter how numerically limited at present, the way they live
and work today is the way everyone else will live and work tomorrow.
