The Maid Story - Family Overhauling Needed

Maids are very uncommon here in the U.S. When I was growing up, I had a nanny who took care of me and my brothers. My mom would never tolerate us being disrespectful and anything close to being rude. I can't imagine how as parents you can allow your kids to scold or belittle another human being regardless of their job title.

Although maids' salary averaged S$300, close to S$1k is needed to maintain them as there's government levy, their food & they pay different doctor fees from locals.
I've seen many families, although with tight budget, cannot function without them especially if the mothers aren't willing to be a bit domesticated or refuse a change of lifestyle.

Maids are human too, such they be should humanely tolerated.Having maids does not make you lordly above another.right?

Nirmala's case is one of its kind. Currently her case is in court, suing the ex-employer of at least RM40k.
Here, it's about self-dependency of the future generations as S'poreans, on average, are the pampered lot.
That's the reason why volunteering activities, a must for students & schools brought them to rugged & less fortunate countries as eye openers & be a more caring & giving individuals.

Maids are hardly found where I live. And its almost impossible to have a maid as they charge a lot. Its hard to believe that people can scold their maids. I don't think it is fair. They are people and can't be yelled for not doing something they weren't supposed to.

Have a great weekend, Ummie...:)

Yes, they are people & it takes all kinds of people from all walks of life to make a nation.
Not all employers are bad & not all maids are good, I mean, I've seen a number of maids with not-so-good intentions & their intentions shown.
Luck plays a part, too.
