Domestic labor markets in Senegal are organized essentially outside of official regulations and show that they are governed by informal regulations. It was observed that the precarious professional group of female domestic workers consists of several segments characterized by qualification level and the corresponding wage. The low qualification segments are linked to the lowest salaries and are found mostly in open and unstable markets. The high qualification segments are in the majority in the most hermetic and most stable markets.
