My research sheds some light about the duality between time-rich and time-poor living conditions and examines in which way this duality/polarisation are paving the way for new patterns of inequality. The purpose is to explore the living conditions of two groups in society: those who are established in the labour force that experience great demands on their efficiency and educational level and those who are unwanted and who do not have a natural place in the labour market. My licentiate thesis; Tiden i senmodernt vardagsliv (Time in late modern everyday life 2006) and my doctoral thesis; Livspusslet, Tid som välfärdsfaktor (The Life-puzzle, Time as a welfare factor 2009) presented a theoretical depth of study. The aim was to analyse time-rich and time-poor living conditions in relation to self experienced time, multiple social roles and time-geographical restrictions. The work/life balance research about the imbalance between time and income in everyday life at a individual level is compared with a process analyse of Swedish working-time policies. I am investigating structural policy-change related to Swedish welfare reforms. The Swedish working time policy is also analysed in comparison to the ‘flexicurity’ concept of the EU. A strategy that is said to combine the employers need of a flexible work force with the employees need of secure working and living conditions.
