Everything changes in an eye blink. For the planet has a bigger problem. The Anvil, an enormous asteroid threatening all life on Earth, leaves little room for two troubled teens. Assessing the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, Human Rights Watch estimates that eight hundred thousand private household workers were officially recorded in , of which thirty percent were immigrant women.

Latina and Caribbean immigrants are more vulnerable in the labor market than European immigrants Lara , E2. The intersection of class, race, and ethnicity has been a prominent component of the study of African-American Dill ; Rollins , Chicana Romero , and Japanese-American Glenn domestics. Race remains a striking distinction between caretakers and their charges and employers. For every white child in a stroller, there is a black woman leaning down, to guide a juice box into their mouth.

In many cases, they are stepping in for white parents, who are working full-time Overington , Insight 2. African-American, Chicana, and Japanese-American women rarely have more than a high school education. A growing number of Latina and Caribbean immigrants are high school and college graduates, and some have held white-collar positions in their homeland.

Helma Lutz noted the international trend toward older and better-educated Third World immigrant women in her survey of research on the globalization of domestic service. Unlike younger and single European immigrant women at the turn of the twentieth century, these women work to cope with financial crisis, to support families, and to educate their children. With the exception of European women immigrating to the United States with J-1 visas to work as au pairs while pursuing their education, most immigrant women are not part-time college students.

When domestic service is constructed as offering immigrant women the experience to move into higher paying jobs, the work is characterized as a bridging occupation. When women experience barriers to entering other job sectors in the economy, domestic service is described as a ghetto occupation to characterize the lack of social mobility and isolation in the underground economy. Embedded in the last category are live-in positions and day workers that might work full-time solely for one employer or for a number of employers.

Employers make arrangements with agencies, franchises, collectives, or directly with the employee Romero ; Mendez ; Salzinger Employees working on their own include some that are bonded and considered self-employed, and others working in the underground economy. However, the actual distinctions are reflected in the working conditions: long hours of employment, low wages, lack of benefits, and the inclusion of all household work alongside childcare Romero ; Macklin Grace A.

This hierarchy was not completely lost on McLaughlin and Kraus.

Consistent with the image of Marie Rainer, the governess that Captain Von Trapp hired to care for his children in the film The Sound of Music, most employers with a live-in nanny assign employees a wide range of household tasks. A consistent complaint among nannies is the expectation that they do housework and cook alongside caring for children Wrigley Distinctions between domestic workers or private household workers and nannies are blurred in the everyday reality of employees as they engage in a broad range of household and caregiving activities, including cleaning, cooking, laundry, nursing the sick, supervising, playing with children, and grocery shopping Rosales Immigrant women, particularly those who are undocumented, are more likely to be hired for live-in work and day work—positions that do not have clearly defined job descriptions Richardson These nannies are unlikely to have much authority over the children or in planning activities.

Instead, they find themselves at the beck and call of children as they serve and wait on them. This depiction does not capture the overwhelming sense of isolation reported by immigrant women, particularly live-in workers.

Isolation from relatives, friends, and other domestic workers prevents them from gaining resources to find employment elsewhere. Separation from their own children is frequently identified as a major factor in developing a strong emotional attachment to their charges Hondagneu-Sotelo In the transformation of domestic labor from the unpaid work of mothers to low-wage work, physical demands are increased and more creative aspects are eliminated Rollins ; Romero The transformation from unpaid to paid childcare involves assigning the least pleasant tasks to immigrant nannies.

Childcare advocates Suzanne W. Helburn and Barbara R. References to immigrant nannies were curtailed to discussions on the impact of their limited English skills and cultural differences on children under their care.

In the case of live-in domestics, employer abuses include violation of their human rights. More extreme reported abuses include sexual assault, rape, and physical violence.

Research on the plight of domestics and nannies in the US presents an entirely different narrative. The next section of this article draws from social science and legal research discusses the role of immigrant women domestics and nannies in the social production of privilege in the childhood of future masters and mistresses.

Immigrant Nanny Care and the Reproduction of Privilege 20Globalization of childcare is based on income inequality of women from poor countries providing low-wage carework for families in wealthier nations.

Even with low wages and wage variation, hiring a nanny is recognized as the most expensive childcare option. In regions with minimal income inequality, the occupation is insignificant Milkman, Reese and Roth A notable exception is Bridget Anderson, who states: The employment as a paid domestic worker [ The hired productive worker is reproducing social beings and sets of relationships that are not merely her own but also deeply antagonistic to her own interests.

Everyday practices of intensive mothering require immense emotional involvement, constant self-sacrifice, exclusivity, and a completely child-centered environment. These mothering activities are financially draining and time-consuming. Mothers with disposable income use commodities to fulfill areas of intensive and competitive mothering where they find themselves falling short. Schwartz argues that advertising companies use guilt as leverage: Companies who are marketing to our guilt inevitably start marketing the guilt itself in order to keep us shopping.

This toy will help your child develop motor skills implicit message: his motor skills will suffer without it. This line of clothing is made of the softest cotton implicit message: other, less expensive fabrics may be abrasive Schwartz , downloading the caretaking and domestic labor of an immigrant woman commodifies reproductive labor and reflects, reinforces, and intensifies social inequalities.

The most burdensome mothering activities, such as cleaning, laundry, feeding babies and children, and chauffeuring children to their various scheduled activities, are shifted to the worker.

Qualities of intensive mothering, such as sentimental value, nurturing, and intense emotional involvement, are not lost when caretaking work is shifted to an employee Silbaugh Stereotyping is based on a number of individual characteristics, such as race, ethnicity, class, caste, education, religion, and linguistic ability.

Interviewing employers in Los Angeles and New York City, Julia Wrigley observed that they identified Spanish-speaking nannies for their ability to broaden the cultural experience of their children, particularly by exposing them to a second language in the home.

Employers referred to the growing Latino population in their community and the long-term benefits of their children learning Spanish. However, the socialization to race and culture politics may be most significant consequence of the current commodification of reproductive labor.

This is partially accomplished through socialization into class, gender, sexual, ethnic, and race hierarchies. The employment of immigrant women as caretakers contributes to this socialization.

Children learn to be consumers of care rather than providers of care. The division of labor between mother and live-in domestic caretaker stratifies components of reproductive labor and equates burdensome, manual, and basic maintenance labor with immigrant women of color.

This gendered division of labor serves to teach traditional patriarchal privilege. Privilege is learned as children acquire a sense of entitlement to having a domestic worker always on call to meet their needs Helburn and Bergmann Perpetuation of Immigrant Women Subordination 29Paid reproductive labor in the United States is structured along local, national, and international inequalities, positioning Third World immigrant women as the most vulnerable workers.

Care workers are sorted by their degree of vulnerability and privilege. Paid domestic labor is not only structured around gender, but is also stratified by race and citizenship status, relegating the most vulnerable worker to the least favorable working conditions and placing the most privileged in the best positions. The solution of hiring a live-in domestic, used by a relatively privileged group, is a component of reproductive labor in the United States.

It serves to intensify inequalities between women in two ways. First, it reinforces childcare as a private rather than a public responsibility. Parents with disposable income maintain private services in their homes rather than support public childcare or join the struggle to gain family-friendly work policies.

Second, hiring a live-in domestic reaps the benefits gained by the impact of globalization and restructuring on Third World women. The globalization of domestic service contributes to the reproduction of inequality between nations in transnational capitalism, and reported cases of domestic servitude are increasingly characterized as global gender apartheid Richmond Women are relegated to low-wage factory work in textiles and electronics industries, with no opportunities available for better-paid positions Gatmaytan Migrating and working as domestics becomes the primary strategy for sustaining households for both poor and middle-class women.

The demand for low-wage migrant workers expands the pool of cheap labor that unemployment and welfare regulations are unable to maintain. Applying this qualification to immigrant domestic workers, Third World immigrant women constitute a significant labor reserve, similar to the function of the unemployed and underemployed. Having hired the preferred racialized domestic caretaker based on personal characteristics rather than former experience or skills, the employer does not recognize the emotional labor required.

Human Rights Watch lists three visas perpetuating the subordination of immigrant women of color as live-in domestic workers: A-3 visas to work for ambassadors, diplomats, consular officers, public ministers, and their families; G-5 visas to work for officers and employees of international organizations or of foreign missions to international organizations and their families; and B-1 visas to accompany U. Under this visa, each nanny receives an orientation session and is placed in geographical locations near other nannies.

No governmental agency is responsible for enforcing contracts. The violation of their human rights is silenced by their invisibility. In addition to low wages, long hours, and lack of privacy and benefits, which are common among live-in conditions, immigrant women experience other abuses. Changing employers under live-in conditions has always been difficult for workers, but women with employment-based visas have to choose between their legal immigration status and respect for their human rights.

They are also unfamiliar with the US legal system. They are excluded from overtime provisions provided in the Fair Labor Standard Act, from the right to organize, strike, and bargain collectively in the National Labor Relations Act, and from regulations in the Occupational Safety and Health Act Smith These conditions reduce mothering to the basic function of economic support.

The provision of material goods, financial assistance, and school tuition results in the commodification of family relationships and motherhood.

Children of live-in workers bear the cost of inequalities in the distribution and quality of domestic labor and caregiving. Conclusion 39Within the privacy of many American homes, immigrant women primarily Latina and Caribbean provide reproductive labor that fulfills the basic tasks of maintaining families of dual-career couples and contributes to middle-upper- and upper-class lifestyles.

The characterization of nannies and private household workers in The Nanny Diaries reduces the significance of immigrant women in fulfilling childcare needs in the United States, and erases issues of employee rights from the American imagination.

Popular culture normalizes the hiring of immigrant women by depicting domestic service as a bridging occupation that offers social mobility, opportunities to learn English, and other cultural skills that assist in the assimilation process. Employers are classified as good or bad: good employers are benevolent and provide immigrant women with a modernizing experience, while bad employers are rich couples that ignore their children.

Popular culture does not contextualize paid reproductive labor. Economic, political, and legal structures surrounding the migration of Latina, Caribbean, and Filipino women are ignored along with the circumstances that relegate their labor to low-wage, dead-end jobs.

This is then passed on to their children. Solutions that improve working conditions for domestic caretakers call for the reconceptualization of these axes.

Second, worker protection laws and regulations must be extended to cover all resident workers in the country regardless of immigration or citizenship status. Current collective organizing efforts have already demonstrated the significance of broadening the Fair Labor Standard Act to include the working conditions of all domestic caretakers.

Managing the contradictions of intimacy and vilification of immigrants through cultural images that falsify employee-employer relationships allows Americans to retain a vulnerable labor force unprotected from exploitation while arguing for humanitarian positions.

Films such as The Nanny Diaries assist in normalizing privilege and erasing issues of economic injustice. Our complacency in the subordination of immigrant women is once again maintained by our fascination with chatty gossip on sex, drugs, money, and family values of the wealthy on Park Avenue.

Our illusion that there is no greater state of being than being American is further enhanced by denying the privileges gained by social reproduction from Third World labor.X's company.
