In other words, people may not be aware they are taking or facing risks. The moment they become aware they are taking a risk or are exposing themselves to a risk, they can employ two strategies.

Migrant domes­ tic work is also frequently coupled with the irregular residence status. This is the case for the majority of domestic workers in the US. In Canada, women represented half of the total applicants who sought admission after residing for five years with an irregular status (Boyd 2004: 6). Mi­ grant domestic workers in Israel also work in an undeclared fashion and overstay their tourist visas, thus making their stay irregular (Rajiman, Schammah-Gesser & Kemp 2003). One could assume that the risk in migrant domestic work increases as the migrant’s status irregularity grows.

Also, particular new labour relations develop, which leads to workers becoming mobile. In addition, going against Beck’s argument about democratic risks, migrant workers are able to influence positively or negatively their residence status, depending on their material standing. Those who can prove they have a regular income stand a better chance of obtaining a temporary residence permit in the country of migration.
