A combined analysis of migrants’ work
conditions and views about social protection
reveals the trajectories of welfare
marginalisation. The article here examines
those trajectories, through a closer look at
the occupation of domestic work and how it
distantiates migrant Albanian and Ukrainian
women from social insurance, health and
pre-school care services. Realizing that
there are objective and subjective factors
which determine welfare access, the analysis
argues that the routes of entry into domestic
work, its organisational structure and the
acquired attitudes and values associated
with it trap women into welfare marginality.
