Abstract

This article draws on interviews with 32 immigrant domestic workers and 29 employers of domestic workers in San Diego to examine the organisation of caring labor in the two sets of households. Neither group relies primarily on government support, although differences in citizenship status influence the strategies of the two groups. Social reproduction has come to involve networks that cross international borders. The strategies the women use to access caring labor contribute to class and racial-ethnic differences among women. Citizenship is of particular importance
