02 Mar 2021 07:50pm
In Parliament on Tuesday (Mar 2), MP Mariam Jaafar called on the Government to consider more standards and structural workplace benefits such as nursing rooms, emergency respite care, return to work programmes and hiring incentives for women over 40. She recounted the unpleasant work-related experiences of two residents in her constituency. She hoped the Government would take up the challenge so that "no women would be made to feel the way my residents were made to feel".
