    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.
