informal economy

UK, English
Example sentence/context:
"...developing workers’ education programmes to strengthen workers’ organisation in the informal economy."

I would be grateful for any suggestions for this phrase. The informal economy is what used to be called (in the UK at least) the "black economy", ie non-regulated.
Could it be translated simply as "economía informal"?

Thanks very much.
