Sometime ago we got a maid who is in her late 20's. After a month working for us, we found she started to transform.

 

She started to wear sleeveless T shirts and low cut. Shorts that are even shorter than shorts showing butts. Later, she started going braless. It came to a point despite requesting proper dressing she did not take the advice and continued. We barred her from going out except weekends.

 

It came to a point where we were so uncomfortable that we had to bring her to see a psychiatrist. Later we found that she was raped while in transit coming to Singapore and was suffering from delusion / revenge / depression. We got her treated with medication and after 6 months she wanted to return home. So we release her but she told us not to tell her family the reasons as she still needs to pay the high commission in coming to Singapore to work.

For the person who gave me the dislike and wrote that it is a fairy tale, I would like to say this you and if I can in your face. 

 

Just because you are living in a safe environment there are many who suffer mental and physical torture just to get a job here in Singapore or anywhere in the world. Please do not belittle these human beings who did what they do to support their families through these sacrifices.

 

When the next recession and depression comes let see just how many of us will risk of ourselves to find money to keep our families going or will we be too coward and just have suicidal thoughts.

 

What upset me most is not the dislike but to think there are people here who have the same mentally that thinks elderly with bent backs picking cupboards for a few cents are doing for the pleasure of exercise or all prostitutes are just selling their bodies to buy LV bags. I may add that these are the people with little more money will demand 6 star service from a waitress in a small restaurant.

 

Just how do we become a gracious society. Actually, I am not upset but feel really sorry for what our society is becoming.

OMG! Luckily you brought her to the psychiatrist. Must have cost you a lot. Hope she's fine now.

if maid just do house work, then i recommend that your automate your home cleaning processes with:

1) irobot roomba - vacuum
2) irobot scooba - mop
3) high pressure jet - wash toilet
4) electical vacuum flask
5) clothes dryer

only thing very difficult to automate is iron clothes

 

Very good suggestions above by Mustank.

I have 2 kids now in primary, both myself and wife working full-time since kids were born. No domestic help, just the 4 of us. Grandparents only help nanny them on weekends (Sat) so that we can catch a breather. It's tiring for the first few years, but likely much less complicated without a domestic helper around. Chores need to be incorporated into your daily routines, so it doesn't feel so tedious after some time. Split the chores with your wife, then stick to the assigned chores for LIFE (unless MC). Where able to automate, then automate as Mustank suggested. As for ironing, just try to buy clothes that don't require it  [:p] and/or iron your own clothes (i.e. tell wife she need not iron your clothes, as you will do it yourself).

Domestic labour in most of human history is usually only afforded by the most attas SES, and/or in societies with massively disproportionate power and wealth. Today, live-in domestic help has become affordable to "everybody" largely due to the huge economic disparities compared to neighbouring countries. This is an abnormality and does not bode well for our society at large. If all domestic workers went on strike tomorrow, then the trickle effect will create serious interruptions in the system. Since when is domestic help an essential service? It would be embarrassing.

Not exactly correct. Huge income disparity is a global and not regional phenomenon.

In US or Europe, the middle income could easily afford Indonesians, Filipinos, poor South Americans and Africans (traditional suppliers of migrant workers) as live in helpers, but min wages and regulations mean they can't have it. Live in helpers are thus very expensive in these countries, it is a big steal in SG but it won't last forever.

Just make sure you know the trade offs.
