There are between 16.5 million and 30 million Brazilians working in
the informal economy, meaning that between 15% and 50% of Brazil’s gross domestic product
(GDP) is being generated by the informal work force. Although 60% of these workers have
less than eight years of formal education, 300 thousand completed high school, and at
least six thousand of them have a college degree, an indication of lack of job
opportunities. What to do? Experts agree that the government must act swiftly and invest
in education and technical skills training.
