Edition : New..

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. To date, most research on immigrant women and labor forces has focused on the participation of immigrant women on formal labor markets. In this study, contributors focus on informal economies such as health care, domestic work, street vending, and the garment industry, where displaced and undocumented women are more likely to work. Because such informal labor markets are unregulated, many of these workers face abusive working conditions that are not reported for fear of job loss or deportation. In examining the complex dynamics of how immigrant women navigate political and economic uncertainties, this collection highlights the important role of citizenship status in defining immigrant women s opportunities, wages, and labor conditions. Contributors are Pallavi Banerjee, Grace Chang, Margaret M. Chin, Jennifer Jihye Chun, H u00e9ctor R. Cordero-Guzm u00e1n, Emir Estrada, Lucy Fisher, Nilda Flores-Gonz u00e1lez, Ruth Gomberg-Munoz, Anna Romina Guevarra, Shobha Hamal Gurung, Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo, Mar u00eda de la Luz Ibarra, Miliann Kang, George Lipsitz, Lolita Andrada Lledo, Lorena Mu u00f1oz, Bandana Purkayastha, Mary Romero, Young Shin, Michelle T u00e9llez, and Maura Toro-Morn.

Synopsis : To date, most research on immigrant women and labour forces has focused on the participation of immigrant women on formal labour markets. In this study, contributors focus on informal economies such as health care, domestic work, street vending, and the garment industry, where displaced and undocumented women are more likely to work. Because such informal labour markets are unregulated, many of these workers face abusive working conditions that are not reported for fear of job loss or deportation. In examining the complex dynamics of how immigrant women navigate political and economic uncertainties, this collection highlights the important role of citizenship status in defining immigrant women's opportunities, wages, and labour conditions.

Critique: "These analytically rich and ethnographically vivid accounts of immigrant women's work will help scholars and activists understand these women's labor conditions and their efforts to gain empowerment and justice. A stimulating and thought-provoking contribution to labor studies, women's studies, and ethnic studies."--Mary Margaret Fonow, coeditor of Making Globalization Work for Women: The Role of Social Rights and Trade Union Leadership
