“Für Frauen gibt es immer Arbeit!“ – Eine intersektionale Analyse migrantischer Arbeit in Spanien

Veröffentlichungen: Beitrag in FachzeitschriftArtikelPeer Reviewed


One of the most frequent answers I received in my field research in Spain to the question of how the economic crisis of 2008 has affected the work situation of migrant women was: “There is always work for women”. In the paper, this generalizing statement will be examined more closely and the effects of the crisis along gender and ethnicity will be investigated. The aim of the conceptual article is to show that an intersectional analysis of migrant labor can provide privileged access to fundamental social contradictions and reveal hidden power relations. Such investigation contributes to a differentiated analysis of labor exploitation and articulates the structural mechanisms with the subjective perception of social inequality.
