Abstract:

Abstract: This research explores the current state of paid childcare between Latin American immigrant women employees and their American born employers in this era of tightened yet fluid borders and economies. Childcare, once considered a dead-end job for immigrant Latinas, can also provide a secure haven within the southern California informal economy. While some feel trapped and exploited, other women exhibit agency and report a job satisfaction and stability absent in other types of employment. Narratives drawn from in-depth interviews among both sets of research participants examine ways that Latina nannies and their U.S. employers are accomplishing mutual goals of improving their own and their children's lives. Their interdependence carries profound social, economic and political implications.
