Malaysian Association of Foreign Maid Agencies (Papa) president Jeffrey Foo claimed the Government was not doing enough to alleviate the shortage of domestic workers here.
"We don't know why it is taking so long. Cambodia is waiting for us to finalise the MoU so they can come over here and sign it," he said when contacted yesterday.

Malaysian Association of Foreign Maid Agencies (Papa) president Jeffrey Foo said all that was needed now was a mechanism to ensure these helpers were properly trained and certified.
Foo said Papa was ready to work with the source countries to create a win-win situation. "Local employers will be satisfied if they get what they are paying for, which are skilled helpers who can do the task they are hired for," he said. The Star reported yesterday that Malaysia is in a fix because neighbouring countries are not in favour of sending domestic help here. Foo said Indonesia, where most of the foreign maids are from, is not closing the door entirely. Instead, it is adopting a more professional approach with its policy to stop sending live-in maids from next year. A possible solution, according to Foo, is for the Government to license companies to supply part-time domestic maids to households who need them. These companies could take care of the maids' lodging and food but this would require a shift in government policy. Foo pointed out that foreign workers brought in as cleaners were not supposed to be sent to work as domestic maids at individual homes.

Foo pointed out that foreign workers brought in as cleaners were not supposed to be sent to work as domestic maids at individual homes. Malaysian Association of Foreign Maid Agencies (Papa) president Jeffrey Foo said its members will be able to meet the local demand for foreign maids by arranging supply from other countries. Foo said the country wants to uplift and redefine their image by sending only professionally trained citizens abroad. "We are optimistic that the Indonesian government will reconsider sending more trained workers to be employed as caregivers, child minders and elderly care nurses," he told theSun. Nevertheless, he said Papa members are already bringing in maids from other source countries to meet the demands of Malaysian employers. Foo said that during the association's meeting with the Human Resources Ministry a week ago, the ministry's officials had raised the Indonesian government's request for the minimum pay of Indonesian maids be increased to the amount of RM1,000. "Yes, we are aware of the predicament the Filipino maids are facing over the US dollar strengthening and we are trying to see how best this issue could be settled among stake players," Jeffrey C. T. Foo, who presides over the Malaysian Association of Foreign Maid Agencies (Papa), told The Rakyat Post. Elaborating, Foo explained there was in place a contractual agreement between employers and Filipino maids which stipulates a monthly salary of US$400. "When the maids run away, employers are fined more than RM500 by Immigration and this did not go down well with them," Foo added on. "This has been a known agreement for the last 10 years for Filipino maids that their salary is based on US dollars," said Malaysian Association of Foreign Maid Agencies (Papa) president Jeffrey Foo. He said many maids had come forward to complain that their employers had not been paying their salary according to the contract, which resulted in the embassy releasing the statement as a reminder to employers. Foo said business had definitely dropped as employers found it more expensive to hire Filipino maids.
