Özet

The effects of precariousness, as a product of the neoliberal transformation of the labour markets, go beyond the workplace to become a factor of everyday life, and as such can be regarded as a constitutive factor in the formation of a working class within the neoliberal context. Despite having similar experiences under precariousness, it would appear that tourism workers in Antalya do not develop a class consciousness, and as such do not constitute an organised class movement. According to the findings of a qualitative case study of 42 tourism workers in various tourism centres of Antalya, the spatial dispersion of workers is the predominant factor preventing the formation of a class consciousness.
