Majority of domestic workers are migrants and belong to ethnic minority communities. Their working conditions are disgusting with long working hours, low pay and absence of social security. The volume discusses the magnitude of informal sector and urban poverty in India; and studies the living conditions, problems and prospects of live-in and live-out domestic woman workers in a city.
