Housekeepers in Danger

A disequilibrium of discriminating domestic workers caused by lack of protection of their human rights and lack of understanding. In Singapore, nine maids have fallen to their deaths while cleaning highrises, standing on a stool while hanging on their laundry outside window or while cleaning window. From 2000 to 2012, 75 maids dead by such accidents. In the news that is linked in this post, as the picture shows, a maid was rescued by a ladderman because she tried to escape from her employer on 15th floor by a window. Those incidents happen because of harsh employers who pay little amount of money and mistreate maids by providing little amount of food and force maids to do harsh works. The government should ban dangerous works of domestic workers and protect their rights.
