Feminization of labor

This assignment will require you to offer an analysis of working immigrant women in postindustrial America. Begin by using Watanabe’s article and Ching-Louie’s chapter and explain why low wage manufacturing, like garment work, is increasingly incorporating women into the industry. Use the concepts of deindustrialization, gender, feminization of labor, and reproductive labor to help explain this phenomenon. Draw examples from the readings that help support this analysis. Next, extend your analysis to the service sector”why is this economy also incorporating more women into the workforce? Key on two rising sectors in domestic work: caring for the elderly, and caring for children. Use the Poo and Parrenas articles (on moodle) to explain the impacts of the demand for domestic work on Asian American families. How has the globalizing of work impacted Filipino families in particular?
