Abstract

This chapter begins with a historical contextualization of postsocialist central and eastern European labour migration to the UK in order to explore how neoliberal restructuring has impacted migrants' subjectivities through the imposition of the work ethic and how this affects migrant workers' strategies in the UK. Through a comparative perspective, the chapter exposes how distinctive histories and local neoliberalization processes inform Polish and Slovenian workers' (self)disciplining practices as well as their strategies of resistance
