5.0 out of 5 stars Highlights the unrewarded work immigrant women perform
In Disposable Domestics: Immigrant Women Workers In The Global Economy, writer and activist Grace Chang persuasively counters arguments in favor of curbing immigration and eliminating access to education, health care, and welfare as she exposes the racism and misogyny directed against female immigrant workers in American society. Chang also highlights the unrewarded work...

2.0 out of 5 stars Angry and Biased
Chang does nothing but rave angrily, sometimes supplementing her rage with biased studies and liberal "logic." She finds fault in the United States in every way possible and holds no one else accountable for the situation immigrant women are in.

The book is poorly written and is hardly debatable as the amount of left-wing propoganda is insurmountable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highlights the unrewarded work immigrant women perform, February 23, 2001
This review is from: Disposable Domestics: Immigrant Women Workers in the Global Economy (Paperback)
In Disposable Domestics: Immigrant Women Workers In The Global Economy, writer and activist Grace Chang persuasively counters arguments in favor of curbing immigration and eliminating access to education, health care, and welfare as she exposes the racism and misogyny directed against female immigrant workers in American society. Chang also highlights the unrewarded work immigrant women perform as caregivers, cleaners, and servers, showing how these women are actively resisting the exploitation they face. Disposable Domestics is highly informative, recommended reading for feminists, unionists, immigration policy makers, and the non-specialist general reader with an interest in immigration issues, economics, women's rights, and fair labor practices.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terse, important book, January 25, 2003
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Disposable Domestics: Immigrant Women Workers in the Global Economy (Paperback)
If only every person in public office today could read this book, and take it to heart... The authors waste no words arguing about an unseen traffic in women's labor that barely sustains them, and their families.
