Economy
Rachel Salazar Parrenas
-A growing crisis of care around the world
-Women in the Philippines take it upon themselves to provide care for their family
-The women are mostly the migrant workers
-Some women leave behind their children
-Women in the Philippines and those in post-industrial suffer from stalled
revolution
-The government prefers if the migrant women workers were not mothers because
they think that mothers that leave their children behind are causing families to
deteriorate with children being abandoned and a crisis of care in the Philippines
-Think that emigrated mothers that leave their children will lead them to drugs,
gambling and drinking
-The children left behind become a burden to their society
-They think that the children are victims of rape and incest and the mother has
something to do with it
-Not all children experienced their mothers migration as an abandonment some of
them understood why they had to leave and some of them received help from
extended families and communities so there was no hardship
-Philippines have become dependent on the remittances
- Some of the migrant women workers are nannies and they find it difficult to care for
children that are not theirs
-The children growing up without their mothers find it difficult they are growing up
in transnational households

oAlthough she hasnt they still remain very close and she knows that she loves
