Organizing of young informal workers: Does it pay off?

There are several questions to be answered, as far as the nature, dynamics and ramifications of organized action among young informal workers. This paper attempts to answer these questions from a comparative perspective of Uganda and Nepal. Based on the analysis of the School-to-work transition surveys (SWTS), this paper identifies several underlying determinants of the likelihood of a young informal worker’s participation in associational activities.
