Abstrakt

This article investigates the underground economy in Belgium.
Although several government initiatives are attempting to combat underground
economic activities, we found illegal foreign workers identifying opportunities
and fulfilling market needs. Underground employment thus thrives in a variety
of sectors, including the building sector, cleaning houses, delivery jobs, garage
business horticulture, hotels, industrial cleaning, and social work.
