Call for pay hike for foreign domestic workers

HONG KONG (SE): The Justice and Peace Commission is pushing for 25 per cent pay rise in the minimum wage for foreign domestic workers in Hong Kong. 
Around 300 foreign domestic workers, dressed in red, marched from Chater Road to the Central Government Offices in Tamar on September 9 to fight for an increase of their minimum allowable wage from $4,410 to $5,500 as well as an up in food allowance from $1,053 to $2,500. The rally was organised by the Asian Migrant Coordinating Body.
