On Friday's Backchat, working conditions for domestic helpers. A survey conducted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong has found that more than 70% of foreign domestic helpers work over 13 hours a day, around 6% of workers did not get at least one day off per week, and more than 20% of them did not get all 12 days of statutory holidays. Are working conditions being abused? Has the live-in rule made it more difficult to define the working hours? How do you count working hours of helpers?How do you enforce the law, or even be aware of problems ina private, domestic setting?
After 9.20, government's complete ban on e-cigarettes.
