Command economy carryovers and recently implemented labor relation models mark Vietnam’s engagement with global capitalism. Numerous social and economic entitlements are tied to household registration policies, whereas tripartitism is increasingly the mode through which labor and social protections are accessed.Trade unions have a newfound dual function—they must meet the needs of both party and workers.This structural framing shapes workers’ precariousness, marked by insecure work and changing "traditional" social support institutions, particularly the family and community. Insecure work and changing social protections orbit around one another, yet this precariousness is managed through new, worker-initiated support networks.
