The ascent of lean production by finance capital through job flexibility and casualization have caught Indian workers unaware, says Banderjee (economics, Institute of Development Studies, Kolkata), and labor movements were unprepared for these developments because there had been no advance signal from the economic fundamentals. He elaborates on this theme, and particularly confronts the paradox that the standards in the organized factory sector are worsening while those in the sector where labor institutions have little penetration are relatively stable.
