The aim of the study was to investigate the context of labor insertion
of youth workers and non-workers and their opinion about work
definitions. There were 7425 participants, aged between 14 and 24 years
old, both genders, of low economic level. The instrument was a
questionnaire about risk and protective factors. The data analysis
included descriptive statistics, chi-square and Student t test. Some
results showed youth workers find more opportunities of informal work
and receive remuneration lower then a minimum wage, considering that
they work between 5 and 8 hours a day. In the total sample, the meanings
of work as "useful production of something" and "money" were
distinguished. These dimensions can reflect the search for a
constructive and productive work for the individual and society, that
provides survival conditions for them and their family. Youth lacks of a
formal work, with benefits and perspective of professional ascension.
