Despite universal agreement that work cannot be distinguished from leisure by listing tasks (for example, cooking, ironing, and writing) and that the social relations within which activity is conducted need to be investigated, at this point, the two camps diverge.

Since we deal with processes over time, marginalisation may be conceived as a process whereby people voluntarily move or are pushed or pulled away into marginality and further into exclusion. Marginalisation is, however, also possible in the other direction; but in this case it is often conceived as a positive movement out of exclusion, into marginality and eventually maybe across the borderline into inclusion. There are, however, also processes which involve movements of people directly from inclusion into exclusion without a stage of marginality, for example when older workers retire or are fired overnight with very little chance of ever finding a new job.
As a consequence, it can no longer be simply assumed that those marginalised or excluded from formal employment compensate for their exclusion by being included into more informal subsystems of work. For example, it is often assumed that rural populations engage in higher amounts of unpaid community exchange than urban populations. A recent study in rural England explores this issue (Williams et al, 2001). It reveals that although unpaid community exchange is slightly higher amongst rural populations, it tends to be relatively affluent households in jobs who both give and receive the vast majority of this unpaid community exchange.
