Servicing the Middle Classes: Class, Gender and Waged Domestic Labour in Contemporary Britain
Domestic service is being reinstated by the middle classes. Demand for domestic labour has increased in Britain in recent years. For some, hiring domestic help is nothing new, but for the majority of British households, it is beyond the range of immediate experience. This text sets out to investigate the resurgence of demand for waged domestic labour in Britain during the 1980s and early 1990s, and the consequent growth of a new servant class.
