Potential of immigration to reproduce patriarchal forms of exploitations
Immigration has the potential to reproduce the patriarchal forms of exploitation because in most of the immigrants who have started their own small businesses use their women not only as a free labor to save money but the women are also required to take care of the households (domestic labor). For the purpose of reducing the business expenses, such businesses are kept open for extended hours and thus women are used as free shift workers in such businesses avoiding any outside hiring for supporting the work. Moreover, such women being burdened with both the domestic as well as business labor don’t have the opportunities to learn advance skills and find better ways to live. While men have both such opportunities as well as friendship networks to enjoy.
