Any discussion on professional training and labor market insertion must take into account the social vulnerability of the Brazilian population. Close to 16 million families fall within the criteria of Bolsa Familia`s Single Registry. Seventy-two (72) million people live in these families, but only 29 million of these are economically active. The objective of this text is to begin an exploratory analysis of the labor market insertion of these individuals by grouping them into relevant categories and suggesting possible public policies for each type of profile. We hope to show that the potential beneficiaries of Bolsa Familia are also potential beneficiaries of a large set of public policies and that the Brazilian poor stand to gain if these policies work together in an integrated fashion.
