This chapter highlights how ethnic difference and national culture are ‘naturalized’ through organizational practices which render two ethnic-minority Turkish employees ‘familiar strangers’. Furthermore, the chapter explains how ethnic identity intersects with other socio-cultural categories, such as educational background, family relations, and work attitude. Hence, the exclusion of two employees with Turkish backgrounds becomes a process of interacting practices of a power play, which is based on a variety of perceived intersecting differences of which ethnicity is but one.
