Being a maid is a shameful thing. But working as a chambermaid is not. Huh?
To bring fear, you give me a glimpse of what happens if we have a bad government. Now with recession, you encourage my grandmas, aunties and perhaps even mother to work as chambermaids.
Maybe it's because the government can no longer feed them. Or perhaps the wonderful retirement plan (ie CPF) is a ticking bomb waiting to blow up in our faces.
So this scenario begs the questions:
Am I paying millions for a bad dose of government already? If yes, why am I still paying?
Aren't the women in Singapore working as chambermaids akin to being maids in foreign countries? Is there really a difference then?
