Gramsci comes to mind here with his observation that "liberalism too is a form of state 'regulation', introduced a n d maintained through coercion and legislation: it is a fact of conscious will, a will conscious of its own ends, rather than the automatic, spontaneous expression of an economic fact" (Gramsci 1994: 152).

But it is true that the initial invitation, in its first signification, fell flat. Why? Why was it that the workers belonging to the 'j'uridically" defined private sector of the economy did not join the struggle? The explanations given for the fact that workers in the private sector did not come out on strike are grounded in realism: they range from justifications related to the structure of the waged workforce (a waged workforce which i s individualised and therefore subject to immediate repression by its bosses in the event of strike action) to justifications arising from the crisis of trade unionism in the private sectors of industry and services.
