There are pros and cons to hiring a maid.
Let’s talk about the cons first. First most of the maid primarily problem is being lazy when they work with anyone not more than six months onwards. This figure statistic is based on the average scale of research did by certain Manpower and Foreign Worker Division to survey the ongoing problem that most people who hire maids complaint.
Second, the average wagers which is the following; Indonesia – RM 500.00, Philippines – USD400.00, Cambodia – RM 600.00, Vietnam – RM 900.00. It’s clear that the wager is quite high in comparison than last couple years ago.
Third is that whenever hiring maid, we’ll automatically dependent on the maid because most of the house chores is done by them but the down fall is when we’re too dependent, will tend to forget what if can’t afford to hire the maid or economy having recession.
Fourth is the maid’s attitude. The reason of the attitude change is because of the perception that most of the people that hire maids are financially stable due to the fact that hiring a maid based on current market value is quite high. Once the maid is too comfortable, they will feel themselves like the owner because back home, they living condition is quite poor as compared to Malaysia.
Next is greed. The reason of this is because cash is king and money is the new religion. Quite frankly, if anyone were to found any amount of money, would definitely keep it because this is the average human attitude. Another thing is that whenever hiring maid, we will automatically become dependent on the maid because most of the house chores is done by them but the down fall is when we are too dependent, will tend to forget what if can’t afford to hire the maid or economy having recession.
After that, it might have bad influence on the children is side. Those children use to have maid, don’t need to do any household work, and view maid is an essential part of their life already. Want to eat, tell maid to cook, no cloth to wear, call maid to wash or iron and so on. The goal is to train the children to live independently. Doing household chore is part of the training. Furthermore, these little lovely creatures might take some ‘bad’ teaching from maid as she might be the closer friend than the parents.
