Example text

In context of this policy, migrant women in the domestic work sector often experience so-called ‘lasting temporariness’. Their migration lasts for several years, but their ‘tourist’ stay or fixed-term residence status in the migration country does not change. Meanwhile, their households in the place of origin become increasingly dependent on their earnings. Thus, domestic work that can initially be an opportunity, in the long-term may become a ‘trap’ for the migrant. In risk terms, ‘the chance’ is to earn a satisfactory sum of money compared to wages in the migrant’s country of origin.

In general, individuals operate within clearly established routines that create and recreate a sense of ontological security, meaning ‘the confidence that most human beings have in the continuity of their self-identity and the constancy of the surrounding social and material environments of action’ (Giddens 1990: 92). The stability of social routines is central to the continuity of personality and institutions. The routines are bound to a particular, familiar setting and thus an important element of safety routines is the creation and/or recreation of trust.

Women who employ migrants in their household do not want to be emotionally ‘replaced’ by the nanny and they do not want their position in the household to be questioned (Lutz 2008). In her work on Latina immigrant domestic workers in Los Angeles in the mid- to late 1990s, Hondagneu-Sotelo (2003: 63-65) analyses the role of power relations between the migrant and the employer, their unequal social roles and the resulting conflict in this type of work. Migrant women themselves may also recreate ethnic and national hierarchies imposed on them by the employers.
