Abstract:

"Restructuring Caring Labour examines the changing social conditions that shape the paid and unpaid work that women do. For example, globalization has led to major social and economic changes that disadvantage women in particular ways, yet there is little recognition of how this restructuring increases and changes the caring labour that women (as nurses, garment workers, laid-off employees, and caregivers) do and how these get played out in gendered, classed, and racialized ways. Tighter restrictions on welfare eligibility for single mothers; enforced 'volunteer' work for welfare recipients; the pressure on parents (usually mothers) to assist at their children's daycare centres as public funding is withdrawn; and the restructuring of health care with its consequences for elderly persons (most of them women) are some of the issues examined in this thought-provoking book."--Jacket.
