Some working couples leave their maid at home alone during the day. They stand the risk that the maid may invite visitors into their home.
I suggested that they install a camera at home to record visitors. A few people argued that this shows a lack of trust of the maid or intrude into their privacy.
Here are the positive reasons:
- the camera record the main entrance to the home only
- there are many parts of the home that the maid can keep her privacy
- when we use an ATM machine or visit a shopping mall, we are being recorded
Trust is mutual. If the maid does not respect my right to protect my property, it is all right. I can look for another maid.
There are many ways to show kindness and respect to the maid. We can pay an adequate salary and give time off.
