No more multi-tasking for Indonesian maids

Housemaids in Malaysia are more often than not either from Indonesia or The Philippines. Recently, Indonesia lifted its ban to send maids over but has drawn up new guidelines pertaining to work scope and remuneration.

The stipulation is Indonesian maids will be employed to handle only one task - cooking or baby-sitting or taking care of the elderly or housekeeping. They will no longer be multi-tasking. The basic salary for an Indonesian maid shall be RM700 a month. Malaysia has not agreed to these stipulations.
