I received an important email from my friend Welfare Officer Mamerto “Bo” Mercado of POLO/OWWA Riyadh informing us the detailed explanation in Question and Answer Format about the HSW (Household Service Worker) Enhancement Reform Program.
After a few minutes, I read a news item at INQ7.net that the labor department yesterday lowered the minimum age for overseas Filipino domestic helpers from 25 to 23 and eased training requirements.
Wow!! Just a blink of an eye, I may not be surprise that in a few minutes after posting this entry the required new minimum wage of USD 400.00 for our Filipina Domestic Helpers may change to USD 300.00.
What a —–. Anyway here’s the link about the “so called” HSW (Household Service Worker) Enhancement Reform Program. I call it “so called” because I am not sure that there will be another changes in the next few days – Huh!!!!
