About Us

Globally, 2 billion people work in the informal economy. This means that 61% of workers rely on work that offers little pay and few protections. Women informal workers, such as domestic workers, home-based workers, street vendors and waste pickers are at the base of the economic pyramid with the highest risk of poverty. Public policies and social protection schemes often do not consider these workers, leaving them vulnerable to income losses and struggling to cope after an event or shock. In this monthly podcast we will discuss some of the most pressing issues related to social protection from the perspective of informal workers, including debates around the future of work, demographic changes and the informal economy, as well as social services, like child care and health that can protect informal workers’ incomes. Subscribe to the “Informal Economy Podcast: Social Protection” to learn more about WIEGO’s cutting-edge research and hear from informal workers organisations about the debates, policies, successes and challenges they face in accessing and reforming social protection systems.

#05b Trabajadoras Del Hogar Y Violencia en el Trabajo

La violencia y el acoso en el lugar de trabajo afectan a muchos trabajadores en todo el mundo, especialmente a las mujeres. Es un fenómeno tan generalizado que se incluyó en el orden del día de la próxima conferencia internacional del trabajo, que tendrá lugar en los próximos días en ginebra, donde la cuestión será objeto de una segunda ronda de debates, con vistas a la adopción de un convenio de la OIT. Es importante tener en cuenta que la violencia y el acoso en el lugar de trabajo también afectan de distintas maneras a trabajadores diferentes: hombres y mujeres, trabajadores formales e informales. Para ayudarnos a entender mejor las implicaciones de esta violencia, el trabajo doméstico y la interseccionalidad entre el género y el estatus laboral - y el papel de la protección social en el tratamiento de este problema - invitamos a Adriana Paz. Adriana es originaria de Bolivia y ha trabajado como organizadora comunitaria, educadora e investigadora durante más de 15 años en justicia social, derechos de la mujer y derechos de los migrantes para organizaciones comunitarias y sin fines de lucro en Bolivia, México y Canadá. Actualmente es la coordinadora regional para américa latina de la federación internacional de trabajadoras del hogar – FITH/IDWF. *Violence and Informal Work (Briefing) http://www.wiego.org/sites/default/files/publications/files/ILC_WIEGO_Briefing%20Note%20Violence%20in%20the%20workplace%20EN%20for%20web.pdf *Workplace Violence and Harassment: Informal Workers Also Need *Protection http://www.wiego.org/blog/workplace-violence-and-harassment-informal-workers-also-need-protection *Pagina de la ILO sobre la 108a Conferencia Internacional de Trabajo https://www.ilo.org/ilc/ILCSessions/108/lang--en/index.htm Reports of the Standard-Setting Committee on Violence and *Harassment in the World of Work: Summary of proceedings (ILO) https://www.ilo.org/wcmsp5/groups/public/---ed_norm/---relconf/documents/meetingdocument/wcms_631807.pdf *IDWF sobre violencia con base de genero http://idwfed.org/en/updates/gender-based-violence *Campaña de IDWF “Erradicar Violencia con base de genero en el trabajo” http://www.idwfed.org/en/resources/support-campaign-to-end-gender-based-violence-at-work *IDWF en Facebook https://www.facebook.com/IDWFED/ *IDWF en twitter https://twitter.com/IDWFED Nuestro tema musical es Focus, de A.

#05 Domestic Workers and Violence at the workplace

Violence and harassment at the workplace affect many workers all over the world, especially women. It is such a pervasive phenomenon that it was included in the agenda of the next International Labour Conference, which will take place the coming days in Geneva, where the issue will be up for a second round of discussions, with a view to the adoption of an ILO convention. It is important to bear in mind that violence and harassment at the workplace also affect in distinct ways different workers: men and women, formal and informal workers. To help us understand more about the implications of this issue for domestic workers and the intersectionality between gender and work status – and the role of social protection in addressing this problem – we invite Adriana Paz. Adriana is originally from Bolivia and she has worked as community organizer, women’s rights and migrant rights for community based and non-profit organizations in Bolivia, Mexico and Canada. She is currently the Latin America regional coordinator of the international domestic workers federation – IDWF. *Violence and Informal Work (Briefing Note) http://www.wiego.org/sites/default/files/publications/files/ILC_WIEGO_Briefing%20Note%20Violence%20in%20the%20workplace%20EN%20for%20web.pdf *Workplace Violence and Harassment: Informal Workers Also Need Protection http://www.wiego.org/blog/workplace-violence-and-harassment-informal-workers-also-need-protection *ILO page on the 108th International Labour Conference https://www.ilo.org/ilc/ILCSessions/108/lang--en/index.htm *Reports of the Standard-Setting Committee on Violence and Harassment in the World of Work: Summary of proceedings (ILO) https://www.ilo.org/wcmsp5/groups/public/---ed_norm/---relconf/documents/meetingdocument/wcms_631807.pdf *IDWF on gender-based violence http://idwfed.org/en/updates/gender-based-violence *IDWF Campaign to “End Gender-based Violence at Work” http://www.idwfed.org/en/resources/support-campaign-to-end-gender-based-violence-at-work *IDWF at Facebook https://www.facebook.com/IDWFED/ *IDWF on twitter https://twitter.com/IDWFED Our theme music is Focus, from A.

#04 Child Care and Informal Economy

Child care is often regarded as part of the education policy, centred around early childhood care and development. But child care is also the provision of a service that has a close relation to social protection and women economic empowerment. Informal women workers' low earnings mean they work long hours to secure their family livelihood, often times leaving little time for them to care for children living in their households. But children require care, and without the provision of quality child care services, women either take on more flexible but insecure informal work, work fewer hours in these jobs than they need or want, or are less productive because they have to look after their children while trying to work. The lack of quality child care options contributes to gender inequalities in labour force participation rates and earnings and to high levels of poverty among women informal workers. Today we invite Rachel Moussié understand more about this topic. Rachel holds a MSc in...
