Forced labour common for Hong Kong domestic workers

The city of Hong Kong has around 300,000 domestic workers, mainly women from Indonesia and the Philippines. A new report has found that the working conditions for many of them are still very oppressive, with as many as 50,000 of them working in conditions of forced labour. Unfortunately this is a problem that has been existed for some years, and only through the right of residency and the ability to join unions, will conditions improve for these workers.
