This paper looks into migrant and minority ethnic care workers’ experiences of racism and discrimination in London. It is based upon 26 semi-structured interviews with non-EU migrant and EU-born minority ethnic care workers. Findings from this qualitative research indicate that such experiences are not rare in the for-profit elderly care sector. This article argues that migration policies as well as employment and care regimes play a major role in shaping these experiences and in framing consequent coping strategies. The paper looks into how various manifestations of racism are embedded in institutional racism.
