Description Drawing on interviews with both providers and employers of paid childcare in Slovakia between 2013 and 2015 this paper focuses on emerging market for paid domestic work in Slovakia. Inspired by Helma Lutz’s concepts of care and gender regimes organizing cultural codes of social policy and social practice in which relationships involved in domestic care are articulated and negotiated, I will show how supply and demand for paid domestic work and relationships between providers and employers are constructed in relation to welfare state regulations and local gendered identities.
