Home-Based Woman Workers: The Case of Turkey / Eskisehir
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Verda CANBEY ÖZGÜLER

Home-based work is usually performed at “home”. However, it is a type of work that is different from other works such as child care and cleaning that are performed at homes. It is seen that the scope of home-based work broadened in terms of people and places even though it had been argued that home-based work would end due to adoption of modern modes of production in the economy. Spread of post-Fordist mode of production in Turkey, as in other countries, within the scope of globalization, and informalization diversified home-based work, and the number of people working in this field increased. This study examines working conditions of home-based woman workers living in Eskisehir province, and their place and importance in the work life. Quantitative and qualitative methods were used together in the present study where the place and importance of home-based woman workers in the work life were examined in terms of demographic, social and economic variables in Eskisehir province.
