The article focuses on young workers in the activist production field, defined as production that explicitly expresses a militant stance. Looking at several fields of the solidarity economy and the online business La Ruche qui dit Oui!, the research encountered individuals looking for new forms of labor and/or employment. Their profiles were similar, all sharing the urge to combine personal beliefs and remuneration by engaging in socially responsible professional activity. From the outset of their professional lives, these young workers seek out “meaningful” employment in defense of a cause. Some of them combine this with a rejection of waged employment, preferring a labor framework that gives them autonomy and flexibility.
