There is finally good news for employers who have been waiting patiently for their Indonesian maid(s) to come on board. But this time, there is a twist to the employment. Maids will no longer do multi-tasking.
Indonesian maids will be employed to handle only one task - cooking or baby-sitting or taking care of the elderly or housekeeping.
This was concluded at the Malaysia-Indonesian Joint Task Force for Deployment, Placement and Protection of Indonesian Maids' meeting here on Thursday.
The first batch of 106 Indonesian maids bound for Malaysia are now undergoing the four skill-training courses for 21 days and will be paid at least RM700 a month.
More on The Star.. No more multi-tasking for Indonesian maids
