The impact of technological innovations on employment is widely discussed. Debates related to the question of the so-called technology-related unemployment have lasted since the beginning of the 19th century, however, many of its aspects escape economic reflection. Drawing on the Actor-Network theory, the author will point to the processes linked to technology-related unemployment which remain beyond the reach of economics. Starting with the particular conceptions of modernity present in the Actor-Network theory, the author will prove that it is not only technology (as the economic conception of technology-related unemployment implies) but rather a coincidence of social and technological factors that leads to marginalization of people in production and services networks.
