Informal workers make up over two billion workers or about 50% of the global workforce, yet, surprisingly, scholars know little about these workers’ political or civil society participation. For decades, researchers argued that informal workers rarely organized or participated in civil society and politics. However, millions of informal workers around the world start and join unions. This raises a related question: Why do informal workers organize in some places more than others?
