I wonder why in a country where there is so high level of unemployment, its so hard to get a domestic-help. Even if you are fortunate enough to be able to get one, then be prepared to treat your servant as a King. Your domestic help will take an unscheduled leave, or even abscond whenever guests are supposed to visit your home. Not only that, every third month, they would hold you at ransom and demand to increase the wages.
It cannot be a typical demand and supply problem because, esp. in metros the maids get a respectable pay… often more than what the traditional office jobs offer.

I often wondered about this myself! Anyone else working at any other job would be fired, but maids are allowed to keep coming back. It’s a vicious cycle I think.

i also wonder why maids enjoy so much power.
