Modern Slavery In Singapore (Episode #438)

KQED World: Sat, Sep 29, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

Many domestic workers in Singapore suffer exploitation, abuse and even rape at the hands of their wealthy employers. Most of the women arrive here via agencies that recruit in the slums of Indonesia and the Philippines. They hope to earn enough money to help support their families back at home. But once they arrive in Singapore, they are at the mercy of their employers. Often, their passports are taken away from them. There are more than 200,000 such domestic servants in Singapore, and for many of them their workplace is little more than a prison. They're expected to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and never get a day off, let alone a holiday.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)
