By fixing the analytical proposal in the links that unite the work experience and the process of identity construction, we sought to catch the small but subjectively important forms of measurement and calculation involved in the strategies of action by workers of sugar cane harvest. In spite of precariousness of the social context, the results show that the meanings attributed to work by the subjects allow us to figure out fissures and resistances which denote the agency of individuals and this is far from an image in which they are mere spectators of history.
