That was a great post Potty, thanks for bringing this to light. I can't imagine being separated for so long from my daughter and hope it's worth it for these women in the end. Sure does make me appreciate the advantages I have in my life.

We used to have a Latvian cleaner who was very good - she was also, almost stereo-typically, a doctor back in Latvia. We lost her after 8 months when she had made her nest egg and was going home; we missed her but were very pleased to see her go. Licensed min-cab drivers in London are another lot - often very highly educated and with a family back home or putting themselves through re-training to qualify in the UK. We are so damned privileged.

Like Nicola, I have a Polish cleaner. She is an accomplished artist and restorer, having studied at the Crakow Institute of Fine Art. Even though she's legal here, it's still very difficult to get other work. Mind you, the cleaners here earn a lot less than minimum wage so she's probably financially better off cleaning.

My old nanny was also Polish. She was a Physical Therapist in Poland and is trying to re-qualify here. First she has to take English proficiency exams, (4 years) and then her Physical Therapy stuff. Probably talking ten years and a lot of money.

Irene, I do try to treat her well. And why wouldn't one?

NVG, ten years? My god.

Nicola, impossible, isn't it?

Paradise, me too. Assuming we're here, will definitely be offering my services.

Sadly, an all too familiar story. The Philippines are incrediblypoor. Even in the Philipines parents work on other islands & don't see their children for yrs. We have Philippino shere in Albania too. Actually they mostly work in beauty salons here wch i sa better job. But th eracism here from Albanians is unbelievable.
I LOVE that idea of hosting a Christmas dinner for the Philippino community.

Fantastic post. I have a Polish cleaner and we were only talking today about the difficulties she has had here in the states. Turns out she is a fully qualified organic chemist back in Europe. Of course her qualifiations aren't recognised in America - and it will cost her over $100,000 to continue her education here and obtain a similar qualification to what she already has.

Great and very interesting post, PM. And it is terrible what some of these people have to endure. I have an Ecuadorean cleaner here who has not seen her children for 10 years. Hearbreaking. The Middle East story is appalling, but does not surprise me. You hear about it happening in London too, sometimes - maids living in semi-slavery.

At least I know you will treat your cleaning lady wonderfully, but it's a sad story. I had heard of this before about people like this living in the Mid East. Very sad!
