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$4,210 per month.

Selfish talk

I have read many complaints about the five per cent cut in domestic helpers' wages, most from domestic helpers.

As a domestic helper, I believe these people are selfish and have no regard for the sufferings of Hong Kong families.
