Disposable Domestics: Immigrant Women Workers in the Global Economy

by Grace Chang - £13.99  Haymarket Books (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781608465286 | ISBN 10: 1608465284

Illegal. Un-American. Disposable. In a nation with an unprecedented history of immigration, the prevailing image of those who cross our borders in search of equal opportunity is that of a drain.
 
Grace Chang's vital account of immigrant women — who work as nannies, domestic workers, janitors, nursing aides, and home care workers — proves just the opposite: the women who perform our least desirable jobs are the most crucial to our economy and society. Disposable Domestics highlights the unrewarded work immigrant women perform as caregivers, cleaners, and servers and shows how these women are actively resisting the exploitation they face.
