Maids in Singapore – Indonesian women at a training center for migrant domestic workers are given colored t-shirts to indicate in which country they'll be working. Their image is in "Long Road Home," a photo essay by Beijing-based photographer Sim Chi YIn, published by the International Labor Organization.
Maids in Singapore – While working as a journalist in Singapore, Sim Chi Yin was struck by the response of ordinary people to the suggestion that domestic workers should be entitled to a day off. "I was coming up against editors and readers who were very angry every time that sort of story appeared because they probably didn't give their workers a day off," she says.
Maids in Singapore – Sim traveled to Indonesia to photograph domestic workers at home with their families. Here a young Indonesian girl sulks hours before her mother is due to leave to work in Singapore.
