Undeclared work means lack of social and health insurance, unstable conditions of work and, usually, low-paid jobs (accord­ ing to standards of the receiving society) (Boyd 2004: 9). Migrant domes­ tic work is also frequently coupled with the irregular residence status. This is the case for the majority of domestic workers in the US. In Canada, women represented half of the total applicants who sought admission after residing for five years with an irregular status (Boyd 2004: 6).

The state policy whereby individuals receive cash payments to buy home-based care is regarded by some authors as leading to an increased commodification and marketisation of care (Anderson 2001; Lutz 2008; Williams & Gavanas 2008: 14).
