The Malaysian Insider - Indonesia bans maids from leaving for Malaysia:
Indonesia’s Labour and Transmigration Minister Muhaimin Iskandar today announced that prospective maids from the country would be banned from leaving for Malaysia until the Indonesian government could assure them of their safety He said the move was being taken in response to the case where an Indonesian maid was allegedly abused by her employer in Penang on September 13.
I fully support the Indonesian Minister's announcement. In fact I suggest that Malaysia completely stop recruiting maids from Indonesia or for that matter, anywhere.
Firstly, many Malaysians cannot handle the responsibilities of being employers of maids. Many are real bastards and bitches. Those found guilty of abusing maids should be punished to the full extent of the law.
Secondly, I don’t want to see the country overrun by foreign workers, like hedonistic Kuwait and many Gulf nations have been. There is a security problem.
If young couples with children both want to work, then they should leave their kids at care centres manned by Malaysians.
