In the minds of most people, the home has stood apart from the world of work. By bringing the factory or office home, homework challenges this division. Home to Work restores the voices of homeworking women to the century-long debate over their labour. It provides a historical context to the Reaganite lifting of New Deal bans. Where once men's right to contract inhibited regulation, now women's right to employment undermined prohibition. Economic and political justice, whether based on rights to homework or rights as workers, will depend on homeworkers becoming visible as workers who happen to mother.The Wisconsin Physicians Services Insurance Corporation (WPS) of Madison hired homeworkers to type, code, and adjust ... Although most entered the WPS program to stay home with children, many became disillusioned with homework.
