I’m gonna take a wild guess and say that none of you answered: clean madame’s dangerously high window from the thin ledge outside her apartment.

Over the past few months, we’ve had a number of blog posts highlighting the often horrific situations faced by migrant workers in the country. As far as I’m concerned, until things start to get better for these women, we can never have enough.
