Every day in the newspapers there are reports of domestic workers committing suicide, getting raped, beaten, murdered, not paid and forced into prostitution. Is there no humanity, legal recourse and compassion? How can anyone condone such atrocious behaviour and allow it to go on and on?
The situation has gotten much worse. Maids are terrified to report such crimes at police stations because they don't trust the police. I've heard of two maids being sent back to their country of origin, mighty quick, because allegedly they were pregnant 'bad' girls. But the other side of the story is that the employer's sons or husbands were sexually harassing and raping the maids.
No more lies please.
The crimes, deceit and absolute disdain for human life is sickening and must change. Laws must be enforced and the victims' aggressors brought to justice and made to pay for their crimes.
We can no longer stand by and let defenseless women and fellow human beings suffer at the hands of these callous monsters.
