Labour attaches (officials in the diplo­ matic mission who monitor the situation of labour migrants) also often use hierarchies, claiming that the quality of migrant women’s work de­ pends on their nationality, with subordination and obedience presented as national characteristics (Chin 1997: 366). For the benefit of potential employers, employment agencies also portray domestic workers according to national or ethnic stereotypes, with Filipina women at the top and African women at the bottom. Eastern European women are seen as more hard-working, while Latin Americans as more loving, but slow (Williams & Gavanas 2008: 22).

In contrast to the domestic work of natives, however, migrant domestic work is characterised by the precarious immigration status. Combined with the isolation of domestic work and insecurity of employment, this fact apparently leads to many cases of mental illness among migrant women (Anderson 2000: 54). To sum up, the migrant’s exposure to risk is determined by the char­ acter of the domestic work sector and service. The gendered character of this job facilitates the migrant women’s entrance into the labour market abroad.

However, the developments in the labour market and men’s behaviour run counter to these expectations (Beck 1992: 103). According to Beck (1992: 94), in modern-day society, the sense of community is ‘dissolved in the acid bath of competition’. He gives exam­ ples of such individualisation when analysing the situation of the ‘free wage labourer’ who has been ‘liberated’ from the constraints of the labour market in modern capitalism, which results in the loss of the sense of security and the necessity to face new risks.
