Episode SUMMARY

The informal sector of the economy includes activities that are not structured according to the economic model of developed nations or those that are completely unregulated and lack formal structure. Nonetheless, this type of work occupies a very important place in the global economy.

For want of education or proper training, many of the world’s people manage to survive through doing various odd jobs on the fringes of the mainstream economy. In order to break the cycle of poverty, poor workers must strive toward professionalization by organizing among themselves and asserting their rights.
