'Informal' work in Mexico

Many turn to 'informal' work in Mexico.
Much of Mexico's economy is in what is called the "informal" sector and it is growing. The country's unemployment rate now stands at 5.8 per cent. The government says there are now 13.5 million people working informally. Mexico's economy is set to grow this year, by just under four per cent.

President Felipe Calderon, who has promised to boost economic growth, says companies need to invest more in Mexican workers.
