INDONESIAN MAIDS TOO COSTLY IN MALAYSIA?

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian employers are not willing to pay RM1,000 or more for the services of an Indonesian maid, adding that they are not taken in by the republic’s promises of “well-trained” maids.
They said the monthly salary of between RM1,000 and RM1,200 was too expensive, despite the guarantee given by the Indonesian Manpower Services Association (Apjati) that the one-off cost of hiring these maids would not exceed RM7,300.
Many were doubtful about the quality of these maids despite assurances from the republic that they would be well-trained.
Bank employee Siti Rasidah Aziz, 40, who has been waiting for a year to get a maid, said she might opt for a maid from other countries since the fee for an Indonesian domestic helper had gone up.
“I would rather look for a maid from Vietnam or Cambodia as it would cost me only about RM700 a month.
“We do not need a middleman to help us secure a maid as my husband can source the maid. We need to pay only for the maid’s levy and other charges, such as transportation.”   
Siti Rasidah was also doubtful about the quality of maids.
