Myanmar Maid

There are more and more Myanmar maids working in Singapore.

This is because cost of Myanmar maid is the lowest as compared to maids from the Philippine, Indonesia or Indian. Their monthly salary is 450 which is about 20% less than what Indonesian maids or Filipino maids earn.

Myanmar maid is also known for good temper. This is one of the reason why they are becoming more and more popular in Singapore.

Maid agency also like to bring Myanmar maids into Singapore market as the Myanmar maids are willing to pay higher recruitment fee. So far, there is no rule to restrict how much the maid agency can get from the maid.  For Indonesian maid or Filipino maids, their governments restrict how much the employment agency can charge.

It is believed that Myanmar government will roll out some rule that is similar.

Of course, law enforcement is also important. If there is a rule, but not enforcement, the maid agency will happily exploit the opportunity to their advantage.

If you intend to hire a Myanmar maid to take care of baby during confinement, it is good to get one who is married with children. This is to make sure the maid has experience in taking care of small one.

It should be noted that difference countries have difference culture and custom, that is why the practice during confinement may vary from one country to another country.
