Hong Kong has always been open, multi-cultural city, no discrimination against race, gender, or religion. Every sunday and public holidays, there are a large number of foreign domestic helpers gathering around in districts like central and causeway bay. They have never been harassed or prevented from using public facilities during their holidays.This shows that Hong Kong people are inclusive, respect them all even as foreign domestic helpers.
Foreign domestic helpers in Hong Kong should not be eligible to apply for residence because for practical and economic reasons. Every country has immigration regulations, the primary concern is always the interests of its country citizen. In that case, anti-discrimination, principle of fair justice should not overwrite the immigration policy and regulation just like most of the other countries.The potential employers here will lost its interest to hire any foreign domestic helpers if the helpers who worked in Hong Kong for seven years can actually apply for resident. At the end the Hong Kong Government may no longer issue any working visa to those who have worked over four or five years here. It could create alot of damage to the good but experienced foreign domestic helpers who need a job in Hong Kong for living.
Hong Kong is a multi cultural city, a great place and open for anyone who wants to come here for working, studying, travelling or investing, etc. However our citizen’s interest and benefit will also need to be protected as well. We urge the respectful from those lawyers who stand against our people of interest and those social workers who claim for equal treatment opportunity on the cost of every Hong Kong resident’s pockets.
To maintain the harmony and the longer term relationship with us in Hong Kong, please respect the interest of protecting our Hong Kong resident just like we respect your country’s and any other countries as well.
