Labor laws in Latin America have traditionally discriminated against domestic workers, mandating longer legal work hours and lower benefits. While elite resistance to reform has been widespread, during the past twenty years a handful of countries have instituted equal rights. This book examines how domestic workers' mobilization, strategic alliances, and political windows of opportunity can lead to improved rights even in a region as unequal as Latin America.
