Résumé

This research seeks to explore the norms and criteria used by social services employees in advising on a day- to-day basis about access to public mechanisms de- signed to fight against precariousness. This is done based on an analysis of the Renta Mínima de Inserción (Minimum Income Guarantee, RMI). This paper supports the thesis that those norms and criteria are sustained by a middle-class ethos transmitted by the agents responsible for access to the RMI system — social workers. For the popular classes who do not share this ethos, access to the RMI does not only adhere to objective criteria established by the regulations — level of income, residency, ... — but rather to much more random criteria linked to the worker’s subjectivity.
