Climbing the Job Ladder?
Informal and Formal Work in Developing Countries

Many workers in developing economies are not covered by official legal protections, nor do they benefit from mandated labor benefits such as social security. This lecture presents a description of these informal workers in countries from across the developing world.

Sponsored by the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences; the Center for Social Science Scholarship; and the Department of Economics.
