Abstract

In Indien protestieren seit Jahren hunderttausende Gesundheits- und Sozialarbeiterinnen gegen Geringbewertung und -bezahlung ihrer Arbeit. Wie in Europa kommt es zu einer Feminisierung von Arbeitskämpfen, weil die Ausbeutung der Sorgearbeitenden sich infolge zugespitzter Krisensituationen der sozialen Reproduktion intensiviert. Diese Sorgekämpfe haben im Alltagsverstand einer breiten Öffentlichkeit das Bewusstsein über die ökonomische und soziale Bedeutung von Sorgearbeiten verstärkt, aber die hegemoniale Geringschätzung und Niedrigstentlohnung von Sorgearbeiten nicht wesentlich verbessert. Die leitende Fragestellung dieses Beitrags ist, mit welchen Strategien und Instrumenten diese Abwertung von Sorgearbeiten unter neoliberalen Bedingungen fortgesetzt wird.
