An excellent book on janitors/cleaning crews is C. Zlolniski's Janitors, Street Vendors and Activists: The Lives of Mexican Immigrants in Silicon Valley.  Univ. of California Press, 2006.

Subject: [URBANTH-L] citations for student work on immigrant-rich industries in the U.S.

I am teaching an undergraduate course, "Work and Migration in the 
Americas."  For a portion of their grade, students will work in small 
groups to research immigrant worker issues in particular industries 
in the U.S., with a focus on power, class, race, gender, and 
organizing (themes we're focusing on in class).  I'm compiling a list 
of scholarship in each of the industries that I can pull from when 
groups come to me for guidance.  If folks on this listserv are 
familiar with publications on immigrant workers in any of the 
following industries, would you please send me citations off-list?

garment industry
car wash industry
farm work / agriculture
domestic / nanny / home healthcare
day laborers
janitors / cleaning crews

Thank you,
Angela C. Stuesse
