  • South African National Day of action against Labour Brokers: Call for strengthening the Social Solidarity Economy
    is known as the Informal Economy for example as street vendors or self employed workers The working and living conditions of most of these workers are precarious in conditions of extreme poverty and without any technical financial and social assistance from the state and the majority in this sector are women who are breadwinners who support their families Despite such adverse conditions such workers maintain their working activity avoiding partial or total unemployment through micro and small enterprises producing and offering a variety of goods and services as well as handicrafts and basic consumer products This sector of the informal economy street vendors or self employed workers despite the adversities in which they work plays an important role in the economies of their countries through the positive impact they have on coping with unemployment contributing to the GDP and social stability to the point of forming a new economic sector that is governed by principles and values of social responsibility entrepreneurship and solidarity which is vital to the development of democracy and economic citizenship â known as the Social Solidarity Economy StreetNet international believes that Labour Brokers only intensify the vulnerability of workers in the informal economy who find themselves working under highly exploitative conditions for labour brokers who feed off the desperation of the working poor It is more appropriate to put resources and energy into transforming the informal economy into a strengthened Social Solidarity Economy whose values are consistent with the objectives of social inclusion decent work training and reintegration of disadvantaged persons and which provides substantial social innovation supporting people who face difficulties in finding individual solutions to social problems and quality of family life and gives them the capability of taking care of their minor children and older relatives in a non discriminatory environment of equality for all Instead of trying to regulate labour brokers we call on government to work together with all workers in the formal as well as the informal sectors of the economy to build a sustainable Social Solidarity Economy in which people are more important than profits Pat Horn International Co ordinator Tel 031 307 4038 w 031 201 3528 h 076Â 706 5282 cel e mail coordinator streetnet org za w phaps netactive co za h World Class Cities for All Brazil Portuguese Blog There is also a portuguese version of the Blog where one can access personal updates on news and events It can be found on this link http streetnetbrasil wordpress com Latest Additions Cambodian Trade Unions oppose adoption of a new Trade Union Law Online crowd funding a new experiment of StreetNet International StreetNet affiliate from Azerbaijan helps street vendors in villages and promotes ILO Recommendation 204 Free Trade Unions of Ukraine marked a World Day for Decent Work Nothing for us Without Us NewsBox INDIA DP is irreparable scrap it say activists Times of India 10 April 2015 TANZANIA College plans to identify trade opportunities for hawkers Daily News 10 April 2015 by Ludovick Kazoka INDIA
