Here in Singapore, there has been a big outcry from employers over a recent government rule to allow maids in Singapore a day break once per week. Singaporeans are saying they can’t do without their maids.
This has led to some questions on how and why maids have become so indispensable in Singapore. I personally don’t understand the question because to me the answer to that is so obvious it’s a non-question. Maids are indispensable in Singapore because young Singaporeans don’t do housework. It's that simple! No one likes doing housework but in Singapore, the problem is extreme. Most can’t cook to save their lives and laundry means the washing machine.
That’s why maids are indispensable. Singaporeans need them because they do stuff we can’t do ourselves.
