Respect and Common Sense – Why Some People Don’t Have It When Dealing With Hired Domestic Help, I Never Know
Maids falling to their deaths... Being tortured… The irony of it all is that despite precedents reported in the news, the cases still reoccur - same scenarios, same consequences, just with different names. I question why our society still hasn’t evolved into one whereby people show respect to fellow human beings, regardless of race, language, religion, education level or occupation. Is it just the Singapore society??
