Abuse of domestic workers in Malaysia

Abuse of domestic workers in Malaysia

We've read the stories - maid starved to death; maid tortured and sexually assaulted by employers; abused maid recounts eight months in torture chamber. Even if domestic workers aren’t physically abused by their employers, many of their lives resemble that of a modern day slave - unfair wages, no days off, no telephones, having their passports withheld, and so on. Joining us to discuss the troubling issue of domestic worker abuse and how we should address this, are Aegile Fernandez and Katrina Maliamauv from Tenaganita.
