West Indian Women's Experience in Los Angeles: The Impact of Politics and the Global Economy

Synopsis

Squires examines West Indian women in Los Angeles. Most studies on West Indians are conducted in New York City or Miami. Examining this group of immigrants in Los Angeles shows how similar and different they are from those that settle in New York City. In addition, it adds to the literature on immigrant groups to Los Angeles. The most exciting conclusion is that West Indian women are faring well economically when compared to other ethnic groups. Though some of the West Indian women, especially those from Belize are working in service occupations, many other islanders are employed in managerial and professional positions.
