Lora has been trying to find a way to make money for her family, and has found a way! She is moving to Hong Kong from the Phillipines to be a foreign domestic helper.
New place, new me!
Time to get started
Lotus Domestic Helper Agency
Can you give me some information?
Lora is meeting with Mr. Lau, the owner of Lotus Domestic Helper Agency. She applied when she was still in the Philippines and is getting information about her job now..
Here's a document:
Official Lotus Domestic Helper Agency Doc - The employer must give the employee, the helper, a minimum wage of HKD $4,520 a month. - The employer must provide a place to stay, privacy, and food (unless they give a minimum $1,075 food allowance per month) -Jobs for the helper includes babysitting, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, running errands, and more.

For the work helpers do, the wage is so low! But since so many women want to be helpers to provide for their families, they are willing to work for low wages.
The minimum wage is so low! But I am desperate, I need to help my family back home.
Now I live with the Fengs, and help them out. I'm happy, and since I've worked hard, they've given me a raise from the minimum wage!
A lot of people want to be helpers, causing a lot of competition to get an employer, so they are willing to work for low wages in the Hong Kong market economy.
