About the Edition

Despite their educational and professional backgrounds, many highly educated Chinese immigrant women in Toronto decided to enter or re-enter the host labour market at the clerical level. Engaged in this problematic, I probe into the social processes regulating women"s choice of clerical work as a "natural". The first social process involves the women"s perception of their language proficiency, skill levels and suitable occupations in Canada, which is formed and transformed at the converging force of their gendered division of family responsibilities and their gendered and racialized experiences in the host labour market. The second social process pertains to the institutional practices of training and employment services that the women stumbled into. I argue that the service organization is dismissive of gender and racial issues facing immigrant women and contributes to channeling immigrant women to the clerical sector, reinforcing the gendered and racialized segmentation of the labour market.
