Informal economy in Argentina
Nine out of ten Argentines believe that the state should support and formalize informal and unregistered workers.
UADE and Voices! carried out a new public opinion survey at the national level with the aim of understanding opinions, attitudes and perceptions of Argentines regarding informal work, its effects on the economy and on the workers themselves, and the public policies to be developed in response to it.
Some findings of the study:
- Six out of ten respondents say that informal workers contribute to the growth of the country's economy.
- Nearly 7 out of 10 (68%) agree that informal work allows workers to meet their basic needs and also to progress in life.
- However, 65% of the population believes that informal work is detrimental to formal workers and traders.
