Columnist: Domestic Help Key to Working Moms’ Success.

In a Washington Post piece entitled, “Women’s success tied to household help,” writer Edward Schumacher-Matos asserted that “hard-charging professional” women have one thing in common: Hired household help. Saying that the number of domestic workers has grown alongside the numbers of married moms who work, Schumacher-Matos wrote, “A study last year by Patricia Cortes, an economist at Boston University found that low-skilled immigration has allowed women in the top 25 percent of female wage earners to work longer hours at the office, if only because they use a maid a few hours a week to help with cleaning.” (January 2011)
