Summary
They clean other people's homes and raise other families' children - often leaving their own families behind. Maid in America is an intimate look into the lives of three Latina immigrants working as nannies and housekeepers in Los Angeles, three of the nearly 100,000 domestic workers living in that city today. These women's stories vividly reveal how immigrants are redefining their roles, and underscores the vital role they play in many American households. The issue of worker's rights is introduced in the film through Dynamic Workers, a collective of women who have formed their own business to provide job security and benefits, and Domestic Workers Association, a support organization providing information and advocacy. A rare view into what is becoming an increasingly common scenario, MAID IN AMERICA offers insight both into the immigrant experience, labor issues and contemporary Latino culture
