Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The labor market in Turkey has been characterized by increasing segmentation into formal and informal sectors. Alongside the momentum of economic growth and development in the post-1980 market liberalization period, the informal sector continues to account for a substantial and growing segment of the labor market, as high as 56 per cent non-agricultural employment and 36 per cent of non-agricultural wage earners in 2007.
