La vie à durée déterminée

LIFE ON A TIME LIMIT
 
In France, some people can work for years without ever being offered an open-ended contract.
Or have no other choice than to take several jobs in order to earn the minimum wage.
 
In France, at the end of a day's temporary work, the next day's task can be cancelled without warning.
In France, workers with no official documentation often still have to pay tax.
 
We come across them, we live next to them, but we hardly know anything about their living conditions.
 
They are rarely members of unions, rarely defended, hardly represented in the media, more concerned about their survival than about their rights.
 
Nevertheless, they all suffer precarious work, educational and domestic situations, they endure debt, and they have trouble visualising the future.
 
These 10 portraits witness what France is like for these precariously employed people.
