Dama y obrero (Lit: Lady and Worker / English: Labour of Love) is a Spanish-language telenovela produced by United States-based television network Telemundo Studios, Miami. It is a remake of the Chilean telenovela of the same title produced by TVN in 2012.[4] Ana Layevska and José Luis Reséndez stars as the protagonists, while Fabián Ríos, Felicia Mercado and Sofía Lama stars as the antagonists.

On June 24, 2013, Telemundo broadcast Dama y Obrero, replacing Pasión Prohibida.[5] The last episode was broadcast on October 18, as part of Telemundo's changes in prime-time programming, and because of low ratings.[6] On October 21, 2 hours of Marido en Alquiler have been temporarily broadcast weeknights at 8pm/7c.[7] As with most of its other telenovelas, the network broadcast English subtitles as closed captions on CC3.


Ignacia (Ana Layevska) is a young engineer working at a large construction company, Omega Construction, which is owned by Tomás Villamayor (Fabián Ríos), her boyfriend. They spend much time together and, finally, decide to get married, but Ignacia misconceives the kind of person Tomás really is. Shortly before their wedding, they have a very strong fight in which Tomas tries to hit her (a strike which is foiled by the intervention of Pedro), which makes Ignacia leave the town and take her time for reflection. This is, when she meets Pedro o Pérez (Jose Luis Resendez), a simple laborer without money and big aspirations, who makes her forget all her problems. The attraction between the two is immediate and mutual (love at first sight). They cannot avoid spending a memorable weekend together, which ends on a Sunday afternoon by when the two are madly in love with each other. But Ignacia knows that, what she is experiencing is a dream, a parenthesis in her life. So when Pedro awakes on Monday morning, he finds a note at his side saying that Ignacia thanks him, and she is leaving without a trace. On Ignacia's return home, Tomás is awaiting her with the news that he is offering her a new position in his company, and he is looking for her forgiveness. She agrees but gets surprised when she comes to the work place in her position of construction supervisor, to see Pedro as a worker at the construction site. Despite having every reason in the world not to be together, Ignacia and Pedro discover that their love persists over all prejudices, differences, rejection and the many, sometimes cruel, obstacles raised by others who want to see them apart.
