evil job agents and the pembantu crisis

Postby Jakarta Free Press » Tue, 18 Oct 2005 2:52 pm

Last year I wrote Maid in Singapore, a novel about the plight of Javanese maids. I am planning to update it and would welcome any input.
Having met an evil old bat who works as an agent in Singapore, I know how poorly these kids are treated, but is it getting better or worse? Thanks for info. Ross
I write novels that take unfashionable stands and tackle controversial issues.

Good on you mate.

Maids are treated like a slave class in Singapore.
