Unions are an effective and important way of ensuring workers rights as Ive read these articles this has become clear to me It was interesting for me to learn through all the different articles about the different ways in which people organize as well as the paths and obstacles that they have to take There often seem to be many similarities as well as differences The article by Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotello Latina Immigrant Women and Paid Domestic Work really stuck out to me because of how much it related to my own life When I was about seven years old my aunt came to visit my family and I in Slovakia she came bearing gifts from America To me any American seemed like a millionaire and America the land where anything is possible and most people are movie stars My aunt convinced my mom to go back with her at first as a vacation kind of thing Since my mom was single and the thought of an American life captivated her she agreed Leaving my brother and I in the care of other family members my mom made the first step toward a female-first migration stream to the United States as Sotello called it Sotello 200 In America my aunt hooked my mom up with an opportunity to make a little money doing domestic work like my aunt ironically for those rich Americans we had heard so much about Much like in the article my mom established herself in America similarly to many of the women Sotello described with the same sort of condescending attitudes from employers and poor wages Although Im not sure if her pay was a lot worse than the Latina women that Sotello described I do remember my mom having to establish many different connections with people in order to survive This was difficult since there are not that many people who speak Slovakian but my mom met people through my aunt
