We as a resident, have a right to feel secure. But by and large, we have not accepted domestic staff as workers with rights. In general, Our mindsets of treating them as servants still prevail among us, this has come out very clearly by encountering the number of cases happening around us. We expect them to do extra work, come at odd hours and moreover no leaves are granted. If employers can consider them workers and not see them a servants, we may not have these issues. We talk about others being violent and brutal how about willing to look within.
People say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. A little effort can create wonders.
