Maids not given day off ask for transfer - zlim - 27-02-2014
Straits Times reported that 3 out of 10 maids asking for transfer because their employers do not grant them day off.
Singapore's law stipulates that maid are entitled to 1 day off per week or pay in lieu.
Employers that do not grant their maids day off often cite reasons such as they have elderly family members and young children in their household. To them, they find it difficult to cope without their maids even for a day.
This shows how indispensable are maids to some families in Singapore.
