Domestic workers in HK treated as slaves: Amnesty


A senior Indonesian labor official said new regulations had been introduced in April aimed at improving the welfare of migrant workers in Hong Kong, but Muico said Indonesians were particularly at risk because the government had outsourced its migrant worker process to private agencies “where the concern is profit.”
