Good to hear positive stories of maids, employers
I applaud the Association of Employment Agencies for organising the annual ceremony to honour foreign domestic workers and their employers (Long-service award for 19 pairs of maids, employers, Feb 12).
More often than not, all we read are negative reports on employer-maid relations, and it is difficult to single out which party is at fault when problems crop up.
Hence, it is a welcome change to hear stories of caring employers as well as responsible domestic helpers, especially those who have worked with an employer for many years.
