Labor Leader Spotlight: Grace Chang

The second day of our 8-8-8 Labor Day Sale is underway, and today we’re spotlighting Grace Chang, author of Disposable Domestics: Immigrant Women Workers in the Global Economy.

In Domestic Disposables, Chang chronicles the critical contributions made to our society by immigrant women. In so doing, she counters prevailing narratives that frame immigrants and immigration as “drains” on an economy.

By arguing immigrant women and their labor instead form the backbone of our economy, Chang shines light on a topic that, due to inequitable socioeconomic forces and power dynamics, is all too often ignored.

We’re grateful for the work of Grace Chang, and we’re thankful Haymarket Books published Domestic Disposables: Immigrant Women Workers in the Global Economy.

To express that thanks, we’re offering you eight days of eight percent off and eight percent donations to Haymarket Books when you choose them at checkout, all in honor of the eight-hour workday.
