Foreign maids: Victimised, left unprotected

Shipped in from other countries, they are, for a mere pittance, made to work insanely long hours, given no rest days and often kept closely confined. And all this happens within the walls of our homes.

This is the life of the domestic servant -- the one sector of employees who are excluded from all the benefits accorded to workers under the Employment Act 1955.

The act only provides them a recourse in cases of unpaid wages and if they are not given a notice period of 14 days prior to termination.

While cases like abuse are criminal matters and can be referred to the police, the lack of legal protection under the act means that there is no limit to the number of hours or the number of days at a stretch a maid can be made to work.

"They don't get set working

"They are the most unprotected and vulnerable workers

A very sensitive person

Are you a very sensitive person?
how much people like your characteristic?

your friend are very sensitive person?
how you treat her/him?

in my opinion,
sensitive people need to be treat carefully
once you hurt their heart,
they maybe blamed you for the whole of their life

if you are a very sensitive people,
you need to know that not all people like your behavior,
not be so selfish,
because you also need to take care of other people feeling
