Employment Status and Cash-in-hand Work



In Chapter 2, it was argued that if cash-in-hand work is to be more fully understood, it is necessary to distinguish between the ‘underground economy’ (market-like cash-in-hand work conducted for profitmotivated purposes) and the ‘hidden economy of favours’ (cash-in-hand work conducted under work relations akin to mutual aid for non-profit reasons) and to unpack the variable nature of cash-in-hand work in different contexts. To do this, Part II of this book investigates how the preponderance of these forms of cash-in-hand work varies according to the employment status, gender and location of the participants.
