Sociology

It is evident that the inequalities prevailing in the society and in fact few countries lead to migration of the people in search of livelihood. The women play a predominant role in the migration process by travelling to the middle-east and upper-class countries for working as domestic and household workers. The researchers has studied about the condition of 'fi' women in two different countries LS and RO. They interviewed them in english and other mixed languages through the means of participant observation in church settings, social gathering after works and employers homes. The research reveals that they the reputation of that specific 'fi' was lowered compared to their actual status back in their home country. The 'fi' community is regarded as high class people in their home country whereas, they were not even recognized as middle-class and the 'fi' women were highly disappointed with such hosting in spite of living their own countries and working in other countries. There are several domestic workers in my community, who provide child care and other household work for middle and upper class households. The race, ethnicity, nationality and gender of these women workers is mostly similar to the employer they work for. Also In few cases, these domestic workers have been migrated from their home countries to the other nations for the purpose of assisting the people, who settled abroad on professional purposes. It is clearly evident the global stratification played a predominant role in the rapid increase of the migration for the purpose of livelihood. The unequal or uncertain distributions of the resources lead to the poverty in few countries with scarcity of resources and opportunities, which provoke them to travel longer ways for supporting their families back in their home countries. This migration of these domestic workers indicates us about the division of labor in domestic work and its relationship to global stratification, in which the poor people and lower section of the society has to leave their home country to earn a livelihood due to lack of employment opportunities back in their own country.

The domestic labor are underpaid and undervalued as on the following reasons: • Usually, the domestic labor are uneducated and belongs to the low-range community of the society • The affordable group of the society make use of the services of the domestic labor for cheaper rates hence, they don't value their profession • The value for domestic labor by nature of their work itself is low and undervalued in the society • Few of the domestic labor are migrated to other countries in search of their livelihood, being non local to that respective country makes them undervalued • The readiness of the domestic workers to work under any circumstances to support their dependent lives are taken advantage by the employers and degrade them with the authority of being the payers Any change, irrespective of positive or negative would be initiated and influenced by the society, refers to people. The changes in the thought process of the people would only coordinate in pacing up the changes that are expected as per the present trend. Any profession or designation should be valued and must consider the factor of 'dignity of labor'.
