The main purpose of this study is to explain the parallelism of transformation in labour market and social transformation with the concept of “temporariness” which is frequently used both in society and in economy. The central argument it is put forward in this article is that in this stage of capitalism, every technical policy change in economy brings transformation of social structure and reshapes interpersonal relations and system of values. Consequently, the contemporary global economy which is significantly based on temporariness not only forces individuals and society as a whole to adapt to fundamental economic changes, but gives also rise to a considerable number of social and psychological troubles.
