PEREZ, Inés. Gender and inequalities in the labor market: the separation of private drivers  from domestic service in Argentina. Trab. soc. [online]. 2017, n.29, pp.25-39. ISSN 1514-6871.

Throughout the twentieth century,work was progressively regulated by the state and associated with different social rights. Domestic service was poor and belatedly included in these regulations, only afterthe separation of certain specialized occupations that were previously considered part of this work. Indeed, during the nineteen forties some workers formerly part of domestic service, would achieve the enactment of specific regulations that guaranteed them an independent status.As part of this process, in 1946 private drivers obtained the sanction of a specific legal code that explicitly excluded themfrom domestic service, giving them certain rights that would only be recognized for domestic workers a decade later and, even then, only in a limited way. From the analysis of bills, parliamentary debates, legal journals and case law, in this article I reconstruct the paths through which private drivers were able to distinguish themselves from domestic service, becoming a professionalized occupation, noting the significance that gender had on this process.
