ANNUNZIATA, Rocío. Revocatoria, promesa electoral y negatividad: algunas reflexiones basadas en las experiencias latinoamericanas. Rev. Pilquen. secc. cienc. soc. [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.3, pp.107-119. ISSN 1851-3123.

The prevailing class analysis of Latin American societies defines informality as a class cleavage that divides the working class (Portes, 1985; Salvia, 2012). In disagreement with this interpretation, this research sustains that formal and informal workers share a common class interest, and therefore are two segments of the same social class (Wright, 1983; 1997; 2015). This article is part of a larger research project that aims to study the structural, organizing and cultural links between these two groups of workers. In particular, this article analyzed biographical and family linkages that connected formal and the informal workers in Argentina (2007). I used survey data from the "Encuesta Nacional de Estratificación y Movilidad Social en la Argentina" (ENES), applied in 2007 to a multistage probability sample of the Argentine population. Data allowed to measure the class schema proposed by Erik Olin Wright (1997), already applied to Argentina data (Jorrat, 2000). The sample used in this analysis consists of individuals between 25 and 65 years old, who were part of the employed labor force at the time of the survey (N=2,035). The paper explores the implications of this evidence for debates around the class position of informal workers.
