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.
