Domestic helper issues

Women and men have been training as domestic helpers in Bhutan, in an effort to professionalize maid and nanny services, and discourage people from hiring illegal underage nannies—as well as to create jobs for the growing number of unemployed.

However, this article shows many of those who took this three-month course aren’t keen on cleaning other people’s houses or taking care of their kids. Ironic, since many Bhutanese yearn to come to the US in the hopes of doing just that kind of work.
