Sensitise public on labour laws

Many formal employment organisations cater for disgruntled, aggrieved or hurting employees by providing counselling services. However, this is not the same for those in the informal sector.
Usually, housemaids have nowhere to turn to when they are aggrieved and yet most times, a problem shared is a problem solved.
There used to be a Complaints Section in the Ministry of Labour where disgruntled employees would register their complaints but many people don’t know about this. There is need to raise awareness about our labour laws, especially in the informal sector.
In the meantime, I also urge every mother to always pray for God’s protection over their children as they leave home for to work.
