Wage receipt: As presented in Chart 6, most FDHs reported to always receive their full monthly wage (127 of the 162 surveyed). Notably, Indonesian domestic helpers cited with greater frequency, a time when they did not receive their full monthly earnings from their employer (14 Indonesians to 8 Filipinos). According to the director of a migrant worker legal aid center interviewed, often these women are made to sign false

wage receipts.

Less frequently, employers will directly deposit the salary into the

helper’s bank account later to withdraw the full amount using the worker’s own bank card –a clever, albeit illegal, maneuver.
