Value chains in the informal sector: income shares of home-based subcontracted workers in Pakistan
This article attempts to contribute to the literature by carefully documenting home-based work in four sectors in Pakistan in a value chain context. We attempt to isolate and compare the unit remuneration of workers relative to unit value added at the lowest tier of the chain as a measure of income share. These income shares are not adequate to move home-based workers above the poverty line.
