This is the short version of a film by Amnesty International that highlights some of the abuses suffered by Indonesian migrant domestic workers who go to work in Hong Kong. Their problems start in Indonesian where they are deceived about the terms and conditions they will work under, including salary. They acquire huge debts from illegally charged recruitment fees which they have to pay back once in Hong Kong via sham loans. Many are paid as little as half the minimum wage, have their passports confiscated by placement agents and employers, and face physical and verbal abuse in the workplace. The interviews for this video were mainly shot in Java with returnee domestic workers who had worked in Hong Kong.
