Researchers, in the past, have found that the development of satellite cities has reduced the strain upon the infrastructure of the parent cities. The impact that the distance from the metropolitan area has on the physical, emotional and economic well-being of the domestic workers who service these areas has yet to be fully understood. This book provides a representation of the sociological profile of the domestic workers in terms of their class, gender and employment history as well as an understanding of the different ways that the workers access and utilize the same space. This book sheds some light on their experiences, working conditions, relationship with employers and responses to the challenges faced by these individuals.
