Some people are fed up with hearing about the difficult life that overseas workers have. They’ve read hundreds of articles from about a dozen websites talking about the plight of fellow countrymen abroad. However, this undeniable truth sank deeper in our minds when a netizen showed a picture of an Indonesian domestic helper cleaning a window.
A netizen named Rochen Monte was concerned about the domestic helper’s dangerous situation. The Facebook photo showed the foreigner cleaning the window panels of her employer’s apartment.

You might think that this is normal and that we’re probably overreacting. But you’d understand our concern if you see the series of snaps released by Rochen. We noticed that in order to completely clean the window, the helper has to stand on a ledge to wipe the other side.
There was no harness or window railing to protect the woman if ever she slips. Netizens were immediately concerned and commented that it was against the law to make people do something as dangerous as this.

Rochen shared that this was a familiar sight that greets her every time. However, she would be concerned and fearful for this hard-working helper. She promised to take a video next time to show a clearer example of how unsafe this is.
And to make things worse, Rochen revealed that the Indonesian native is expected to do this even when the weather is bad.
“Natakot kc ako videohan o picturan pero dko na matiis knina na panoorin xa, nglilinis ako bintana pero loob lng ako at my rehas bintana namin.”
