Inhaltsangabe: Migrant women are the primary source of paid domestic labor around the world. Since the 1980s, the newly prosperous countries of East Asia have recruited foreign household workers at a rapidly increasing rate. Many come from the Philippines and Indonesia. Pei-Chia Lan interviewed and spent time with dozens of Filipina and Indonesian domestics working in and around Taipei as well as many of their Taiwanese employers. On the basis of the vivid ethnographic detail she collected, Lan provides a nuanced look at how boundaries between worker and employer are maintained and negotiated in private households. She also sheds light on the fate of the workers, ?global Cinderellas? who seek an escape from poverty at home only to find themselves treated as disposable labor abroad.

Lan demonstrates how economic disparities, immigration policies, race, ethnicity, and gender intersect in the relationship between the migrant workers and their Taiwanese employers. The employers are eager to flex their recently acquired financial muscle; many are first-generation career women as well as first-generation employers. The domestics are recruited from abroad as contract and ?guest? workers; restrictive immigration policies prohibit them from seeking permanent residence or transferring from one employer to another. They care for Taiwanese families? children, often having left their own behind. Throughout Global Cinderellas, Lan pays particular attention to how the women she studied identify themselves in relation to ?others??whether they be of different classes, nationalities, ethnicities, or education levels. In so doing, she offers a framework for thinking about how migrant workers and their employers understand themselves in the midst of dynamic transnational labor flows.

Klappentext: "This path-breaking study illustrates how boundaries--of race, class, gender, and citizenship--are imposed on migrant domestic workers. Pei-Chia Lan's use of boundary-making as the lens through which to analyze the integration of migrant domestic workers is a very important contribution to the burgeoning field of the feminization of migration. This is a brilliant book."--Rhacel Salazar Parrenas, author of "Children of Global Migration: Transnational Families and Gendered Woe"s

Buchbeschreibung Duke University Press. Paperback. Buchzustand: new. BRAND NEW, Global Cinderellas: Migrant Domestics and Newly Rich Employers in Taiwan (annotated edition), Pei-Chia Lan, Migrant women are the primary source of paid domestic workers around the world. Since the 1980s, the newly prosperous countries of East Asia have recruited foreign household workers at a rapidly increasing rate. Many come from the Philippines and Indonesia. Pei-Chia Lan interviewed and spent time with dozens of Filipina and Indonesian domestics working in and around Taipei as well as many of their Taiwanese employers. Based on the vivid ethnographic detail she collected, Lan provides a nuanced look at how global inequalities are enacted in private households. She also sheds light on the fate of the workers, "global Cinderellas" who seek an escape from poverty at home only to find themselves treated as disposable labour abroad. Lan demonstrates how economic disparities, immigration policies, race, ethnicity, and gender intersect in the relationship between the employees and their Taiwanese employers. The employers are eager to flex their newly acquired financial muscle; many are first-generation career women as well as first-generation employers. The domestics are recruited from abroad as contract and "guest" workers; restrictive immigration policies prohibit them from seeking permanent residence or transferring from one employer to another. They take care of Taiwanese families' children, often having left their own behind. While many of the domestics, particularly the Filipinas, are well educated, they are expected to act deferentially at work. Throughout Global Cinderellas, Lan pays particular attention to how the women she studied identify themselves in relation to "others"--whether they be of different classes, nationalities, ethnicities, or education levels. In so doing, she offers a framework for thinking about how migrant workers and their employers understand themselves in the midst of dynamic trans-national labour flows.
