On weekdays, women walk from door to door like Pied Pipers, taking nail salon workers’ children to school for a fee. Many manicurists pay caregivers as much as half their wages to take their babies six days a week, 24 hours a day, after finding themselves unable to care for them at night and still wake up to paint nails.

The Times goes long on the labor conditions of manicurists. I’m pretty glad I’ve never developed a manicure habit.
