Youth Transitions



Globally, half of the labour force is working and producing in the informal economy. This work is often characterized by low pay, erratic hours, uncertain employment status and hazardous working conditions. A high proportion of these workers are young men and women, with evidence from twenty countries showing that more than three quarters of young workers aged 15-29 are engaged in informal employment. Decent Jobs for Youth aims to support young people currently working in the informal economy to make positive transitions towards formal employment.
