This book contributes to knowledge on the functioning of urban labor markets in Sub-Saharan Africa by investigating a variety of questions. Which individuals lack access to employment or are employed beneath their capacities? Does education improve working conditions? What opportunities does the labor market off er to climb the social ladder? Is the lack of good-quality jobs for adults and the poverty it implies one of the reasons for the prevalence of child labor? Do women and ethnic minorities have the same access to the labor market as everyone else? How does the formal sector live alongside the informal sector? What role does migration play in the functioning of labor markets? Are there traits common to all urban labor markets in Africa, or is each country different? Th is book attempts to answer these questions by studying 11 cities in 10 countries.
