Expert Dialogue on Dignified Work for All
“For most people living in poverty worldwide, their work does not mean earning a living wage. It means exploitation, very low pay, difficult or dangerous conditions, and forced layoffs. People and youth living in poverty are often excluded from accessing decent work opportunities. Many of these people are not part of the traditional labor force. For this reason, their work and expertise are unrecognized and unrepresented.
In the context of the 61st Commission for Social Development, this expert dialogue seeks to explore how, in practice, work should enable people to live in dignity, to support their families and to be recognized as useful members of their society.”
