In a corner of #Singapore Facebook, a group of employers are aghast that a migrant domestic worker asked for a salary of S$700/month (US$516).
"The cheek!" one commented.
"She last worked in Singapore XX years ago? Tell her she depreciated, not appreciated!" said another.
Migrant domestic workers are legally mandated to live in their employers' homes. Employers are supposed to provide "adequate" food and board, but it's legally unclear what that means, and standards can vary greatly — it's like playing a lottery to see if you get a good employer.
