… must be the one reported by The Standard from one Joseph Law, chairman of the “Hong Kong Employers of Domestic Helpers Association” (which a quick Google will show could probably be more accurately named “The Hong Kong Association for the Restoration of Slavery”).
Mr Law “said inflation in Hong Kong has a minimal effect on the livelihood of domestic helpers since they usually spend money just one day a week, He said that for each 5 per cent of inflation, the wage increase for domestic helpers should be just 1 per cent”.
I can only hope that Mr Law doesn’t require any level of numeracy for whatever his day job is. If he finds that he does, I’m sure his domestic helper would be happy to give him some lessons – for a suitable fee.
Sadly, the same Google shows that the Hong Kong Government actually gives these people the time of day and invites them to advise consultative committees. I wonder if they would do the same for a “Hong Kong Association of Humane Employers of Domestic Helpers”?
