EMPLOYERS, BE CAREFUL HOW YOU TREAT YOUR HOUSEHOLD SERVICE WORKERS

 Being a household service worker (HSW), housemaids, (as their employers call them), in an unfamiliar  country with unfamiliar people and culture could be a nightmare. You will come to experience unforgiving treatments and unorthodox rules. You will not understand the hardships they need to overcome everyday from the moment they arrived in their sponsor's house, unless of course you become an OFW. Most of the OFW HSWs especially those deployed in the Middle east complain of not having a day-off, passports being withheld by the sponsor and unfavorable working conditions. In Kuwait, some HSWs  enjoy their day off only once in a year, during Christmas.  There was even a HSW who's photo became viral in social media. The family of her sponsor was happily enjoying their meal while the poor HSW was watching at a distance.  Image may contain: one or more people With the recent execution of a HSW in Kuwait, Jakatia Pawa, who allegedly killed her sponsor's  22 year-ol daughter, the call for deployment ban on HSWs in the Middle East has once again been a hot issue. DOLE Secretary  Silvestre Bello III assured that they will release a decision regarding this matter ,but, according to him, in an appropriate time.  Sponsors may have forgotten that HSWs are human beings with feelings and they also know how to get tired, to cry. They are human beings that needs to be understood and to be treated with respect.  However, some HSWs are lucky enough to be treated well, some of them being treated by the employers as one of their own. They can impart Filipino values to their sponsor's kids.      Whether they accept it or not, Filipina maids (HSWs) especially the nannies, can influence the lives of  the children they are taking care of. How they treat their housemaids can make an impact on how their children will treat even their future housemaids, without changing how the employers treat them, this problem will go on and on for generations. All they need to do is to step back and stop treating HSWs as slaves. Start treating them right. they are human beings and they need to be regarded as such.  RECOMMENDED:  DOLE Sec.
