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.
