„Wandering Workers – Mores, Behavior, Way of Life, and Political Status of Domestic Russian Labor Migrants“ by Juri Plusnin, Yana Zausaeva, Natalia Zhidkevich, and Artemy Pozanenko, offers a fresh perspective on the issue of contemporary migratory labor.
The russian term otkhodnichestvo stands for the temporary departure of inhabitants from small towns and villages for short-term jobs in the major cities of Russia. Based on numerous interviews with otkhodniks and local experts, this stunningly original work focuses on the central and northern regions of European Russia. The authors draw a social portrait of the contemporary otkhodnik and offer a sociological assessment of the economic and political status these –wandering workers– live with.
