Based on her interviews with young women who migrated from China's Anhui province to the city of Beijing to undertake domestic service for middle-class families--and with employers, job placement agencies, and government officials—1998 IDRF Fellow Yan Hairong explores what these migrant domestic workers mean to the families that hire them, to urban economies, to rural provinces such as Anhui, and to the Chinese state.
