Summary:Follows the contrasting stories of two Indonesian female migrants--one a factory worker, the other a prostitute--on the Indonesian island of Batam. An official economy of the day, based in the factories, and an unofficial economy of the night, based on sex work, have developed together, increasing Batam's population from 3,000 to 700,000. As the two economies depend on female labor, the experiences of these two women illuminate the way in which multinational capitalism and migration interact in the shadowlands of globalization
