But what do we really know about how girls felt when taking up these positions in other people's houses, or how they were treated? Pamela Horn uses first-hand accounts and reminiscences, as well as official records and newspaper reports, to extract the truth about the lives and status of men and women in domestic service from 1939 to the present.... small staff on a very local basis to major businesses like Molly Maids UK, one of Britaina#39;s biggest domestic cleaning companies. ... alternatives resembled the purchase of otherhousehold services, like painting and decorating or dry cleaning .
