Looking at the fact that most industry power comes from what we call technoscience and that the traditional working class as described by Marx and Engels has mostly disappeared in the western world. Now productive works in technoscience are:
- computer developers ( this includes all sort of embedded, web development )
- scientifical computation ( R,Matlab,scilab, et...)
- industrial prototyping ( cad, pcb design etc...)
- applied scientists (AI , optimization etc...)
- other areas ( biology, nanotechnologies, ...)
It is generally agreed that workers engaged in such developments should be well-paid and have social advantages as they are highly specialized workers.
Now looking at the fact that we see more and more the rise of outsourcing and that such specialized workers are now found more and more in China, India, Russia, Ukraine, and other countries and that such workers while posessing the correct skills have no real high wages and no real social advantages and nevertheless they are doing 100% of the end work.
This also can applied to students in western countries which are asked to do considerably difficult jobs under low or even no wages at all.
Could it be that we foresee the emergence of a paradoxal new working class which could be named technoscience proletariat?
