Foreign domestic workers in Hong Kong

Since the 1970s, foreign domestic workers have been permitted to stay in Hong Kong to address the city's shortage of local, full-time live-in helpers. At present, their minimum allowable wage is HK$4,310 per month.

Like Megaen Kelly (Talkback, September 29) I have also experienced a deteriorating quality of helpers despite paying them above the regulated rate over the past decade.
