DURIN, Séverine. Full-Time Domestic Service and Discrimination in the Metropolitan Area of Monterrey. Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2013, vol.34, n.134, pp.93-129. ISSN 2448-7554.

In the metropolitan area of Monterrey (MAM), most full-time domestic service is currently performed by young migrants and Indians who constitute an especially vulnerable sector; one often the victim of discriminatory practices that constrain or reduce their rights. Based on a case study, this article discovers the tensions between democratic and hierarchical values in Mexico, and the difficulties involved in assuring respect for the human and labor rights of domestic employees.

Keywords : domestic service; discrimination; Monterrey.
