According to the publisher, this book traces the forms of communication of Latin American immigrant janitors from their marginalized perspective within a predominantly White academic institution. Furthermore, the book analyzes how custodial workers perceive, interpret, and thematize periodic messages regarding race, ethnicity, social class, immigrant status, and occupation, and how those messages and overall communicative experiences affect their work and personal lives.

Everyday Dirty Work is an essential resource for scholars, students and readers who are interested in immigrant lived experiences as well as intercultural and organizational communications, migration workers, and social structures.
