For Norma, the recession means travelling hundreds of miles to Barcelona, to compete against hoards of desperate Latin-American women, for work that brings pennies to her family back home.

Norma works long hours for little pay in the busy city of Barcelona. Yet she finds time to phone her son every evening to ask about his day: “I’m going to work hard mommy, so I don’t have to travel to work”, he says.
