Since the launch of the campaign, we’ve seen and heard much feedback from the public.

We'll like to address the top two queries here. Please do continue to let us know your feedback.

Q1. Why not legislation?

Why aren’t you pursuing a change in legislation instead? Why not start a petition?

Q2. What about the $5,000 bond?

How can I give my maid a day off, when I risk losing a $5,000 security bond?

Q3. Isn't a one day off a month already compulsory?

Isn't a one day off a month already compulsory in the contract? And if it is signed away, the maid agrees to this and is compensated the $20-$30, so what is this campaign for?
