Bogomtale fra forlaget.

This insightful volume argues that care workers—those looking after children, the elderly, and people with disabilities—require security similar to any other group of workers. It provides a valuable overview and analysis of care work as a relevant social policy phenomenon in industrialized and developing countries around the world, while exploring pivotal questions such as how provisions for care are made, who is to benefit, and who is to pay.
