(Updated: )

Have you ever wondered what your helper is doing on her off day? In this episode of Talking Point, Steven Chia investigates the illegal side hustles full time maids take on. How do they get these second jobs? And why do they take the risk? We speak to foreign domestic workers, NGOS and employers about why maids moonlight, and if we should consider making part-time jobs for them legal.
