Can cash transfers ensure decent work?
Poor working conditions and high levels of exploitation are detected in many areas around the world, affecting the lives of millions. In most cases, such conditions are imposed by the unavailability of decent job positions. The EU-funded WorkFREE project intends to perform pioneering research in the city of Hyderabad in India, where a high percentage of people are employed as waste pickers. The project aims to investigate the potential to change working conditions and achieve decent work by offering unconditional cash transfers (UCTs) to members of this social group and engaging them in participatory action research (PAR) with the members of the project team.
