Quality of work
Including both formal and informal employment, with particular attention to the safety and quality of work, and perceptions of autonomy, purpose and fair treatment.
Employment is the main source of income for most households globally; having a good and decent job is generally associated with being out of poverty. Additionally, employment can give a sense of self-respect and fulfilling life. Yet many jobs pay less than $1 a day, are of poor quality and unsafe, with risky working conditions and little or no security. More data are needed on the quality of work and particularly on informal workers and the self-employed.
