Title : Huge Impact Here If Jakarta Bans Maids 

Summary : This article is about how Singapore will suffer if Jakarta issues a maid ban. 

Response : Singapore relies heavily on foreign maids, mostly from Indonesia to serve them. I agree with the writer that if a ban on the maids are implemented, Singapore would suffer great losses, like the maid agencies and those who are working long hours and do not have time to take care of the household chores or children, or those who do not know how to do household chores. I think that Singapore relies too heavily on maids, most of my friends have maids in their houses and maids would be like servants to their needs and they do not have to lift a finger to even get a drink. If Jakarta imposes a maid ban, not only will Singaporeans be emotionally stressed, they would not be able to take care of their own selves too.

  1. I agree with your opinion that Singapore will suffer great losses if the maid ban is implemented. Indonesia introduced maids to Singapore for a reason, which is to let the women from Indonesia have a job and earn money. Not only Singaporeans will be stressed when the maid ban is imposed, even the maids who are forced to stop earning income will feel stressed.
