ABSTRACT | This paper’s objective is to contribute towards understanding the relationship between mobility practices and labour ﬂexibility. Focusing on the case of Santiago de Chile, it argues that an extremely ﬂexible labour market, as in the Chilean case, affects the everyday lives of inhabitants which are compelled to ‘weave’ dispersed workplaces, articulate multiple-employments within a workday or use mobility time-space for tele-working. From an ethnographic perspective, we show how labour ﬂexibility in Santiago de Chile is experienced and embodied through daily mobility practices. The article presents ethnographies in which ﬂexibility changes mobility practices, giving rise to a speciﬁc time-space that becomes an intrinsic, yet seldom recognised dimension of the economic production process.
