This is an important and very readable book which clearly illustrates the economic and political systems that converge to make immigrant women into an exploitable labor class in the global economy. Chang gives a very persuasive argument about the macro-level structures and policies that drive global capitalism while centering the voices and activism of immigrant women and other women of color. I use this book to teach Intro to women's and gender studies every year.

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.

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.
