Caring for America

Caring for America is the definitive history of care work and its surprisingly central role in the American labor movement and class politics from the New Deal to the present. Authors Eileen Boris and Jennifer Klein create a narrative of the home care industry that interweaves four histories--the evolution of the modern American welfare state, the rise of the service sector-based labor movement, the persistence of race, class, and gender-based inequality, and the aging of the American population--and considers their impact on today's most dynamic social movements.
