SINGAPORE MOM MUST NOT IGNORE THE INTERESTS OF SINGAPORE MAID EMPLOYERS
I read that there are more and more rules now already made and being planned by Singapore MOM,
to limit the amount of fees charged to foreign house maids,
which is the same as transferring these fees to the Singapore maid employers .
IF you limit the amount that can be charged to the house maid,
it simply means that you are transferring more of the fees charged to the Singaporean maid employer,
but don't forget that the primary task of the Singapore government,
is to look after Singaporeans and Singaporean maid employers first,
and the interests of foreigners example foreign house maids,
although still important,
but should have lower priorities than those of Singaporeans.
Many Singaporeans have maids to look after their old folks and babies,
so that these Singaporeans can focus on their work.
If MOM keeps squeezing maid agents to charge less and less fees on foreign maids,
the end result is that maid agents will have no choice but to charge more and more fees on
Singapore maid employers,
with the end result,
that Singaporeans will simply choose to have fewer babies ,
which would have destroyed the Singapore government's goals of aiming for more babies,
so if MOM keeps making more and more rules ,
that are pro foreign maids,
and rules that are anti Singapore maid employers,
the end result would be to counter the aim of the Singapore government's high birther rate goals,
and the other problem would be that with higher and higher costs of employing a house maid,
more and more Singapore old folks that need housemaids,
would be simply abandoned to look after themselves at home,
and many of these old folks will surly die from neglect and lack of help.
Maids salaries have gone up too much too quickly,
by 50% to 100 % within just a few short years,
especially after the implementation of the maids off day rules ,
so i think its time that the Singapore MOM ,
think more ,
for the interests of the Singapore employers ,
rather than simply focus only on the interests of the foreign maids,
while completely ignoring the interests of the Singapore employers.
How many Singaporeans have a salary increase of 50 % to 100 % within just 2 to 4 years,
like what foreign maids are getting ..????
