LIMA, Marília Batarra; RIBEIRO, Daniela de Figueiredo  e  ANDRADE, Antônio dos Santos. The perceptions of children and adolescents over their informal work. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.1, pp.48-66. ISSN 1677-1168.

The research was carried through in a city of São Paulo's countryside which main economic activity is the production of male footwear. It aimed at investigating the reality and meaning of job for children and teenagers who work in the informal sector and also the relationship between work and school. Ten people participated in the research aged from six to sixteen years old, all residents of the city suburb. For the inquiry and understanding of the data an ethnographic approach was used, observing participant and semi-structured interview. The thematic analysis of content was used in the data analysis. In the research context, the participants told that they work to help their parents and acquire material goods. They also said that work doesn't damage their school routine; however, the style of parental relationship seems to be a key component for potential losses caused by child labor in the domestic context

Palavras-chave : work; footwear industry; children and teenagers; ethnography; social Psychology.
