Study: For care workers, inequality has kept wages low - BCGEU

A new study by the University of Toronto finds that the demand for care workers and nannies has gone up but wages remain low. In fact, wages are often abysmal for care workers, many of them immigrant women of colour from less-developed countries.

The study investigates how the reorganization of care is influencing care workers' international migration, and how this relates to gender equality and social development.

"That inequality has very little to do with merit, and more to do with gender, race and which part of the world you come from." University of Toronto sociology professor Ito Peng.
