The rate at which people need Filipino maid (菲傭) in recent times is alarming. So many people are rushing to employment agencies daily to request for a maid from Asia because they feel it will be the best thing for them. But why exactly do people need maids in the first place? In a place like the USA, many people are busy with their jobs and it is not very easy combining their house chores with their work. If one would be realistic, the economic situation in the world has given no one chance to be relaxed a little about making money.
Many people are busy with two or more jobs just to ensure they get enough money to settle their expenses. In a situation like this, there is a need for such people to have a maid that will help with the house chores they are unable to do due to tiredness. The amount of money spent on 外傭 (Foreign domestic helper hiring expenditure) is usually small compared with the work such a made or helper will do. This is why most people prefer foreign maids. And these maids from Asia are paid a cheap amount of money because there is an unemployment problem in their continent.
In order to get these foreign maids, there will be the need to contact an employment agency (僱傭中心). These agencies help people to process the hiring of these maids. It is even advisable to go through these agencies because they will account for whatever conducts the maid put up while working. There will somebody to hold accountable for any irresponsible acts put up by the maid. It is because of this that employment agencies like HL&C (康樂居) invest a lot of money trying to train their maids on what and what not to do.
