Do you know the Indonesian maid salary in different country? Based on what I’ve known, the Indonesian maid in Hong Kong and Taiwan need to go through intensive training and well prepared to carry out the household task whereas Indonesian maid head to Malaysia were not properly trained.
Standard Rate for Indonesian Maid Salary In Different Country
The Indonesian maid in Singapore and Taiwan will have more higher salary which is around RM2,400 per month while basic salary for Indonesian maid in Hong Kong is around RM1,700. So it is no surprise that more quality Indonesian maids are flocking to other places, while the remaining stay in Malaysia and among of them will have very low educated or even low morale value in themselves.
Based on what I’ve heard on the air, the standard rate for Indonesian maid salary in Malaysia is around RM 450 to RM 550 per month but the agency fees had increased from RM3, 500 to RM6, 000. The fees were increased due to the rising global petrol prices.
Previously, I got the news said that Indonesia demand maids to be paid at a minimum of RM800 per month but it may affect the low-income group of Malaysians. I personally think that our government should take control of this recruitment agency and ensure that if higher salary needs to be paid to the well-trained maid then they should make sure that the job vacancy for Malaysian employee should be remained stagnant. This also can increase the productivity and bring more benefits to household.
