Did you know that homework is probably one of the oldest occupations? Today, the domestic occupation remains a popular part of the global labor force.
When you see the number of labor organizations that are trying to streamline the process of hiring workers, you know how important this is.
When you see wealthy families desperately seeking help at home, you will appreciate the usefulness of domestic workers in society. However, many countries consider the regulation of domestic labor difficult.
There are no proper standards to make the work environment of domestic workers better. The issue of their remuneration is also there.
One of the reasons for the difficulties in regulating this profession may be that since this practice occurs within private limits home, the temptation is very high to consider this type of occupation informal and therefore it is not necessary to enter a private space, hence the unwillingness to take it seriously.
However, many people look at this activity as a lifeline. Homework is appropriate for them. They will handle this cautiously, given the growing competition for jobs and the need for livelihoods.
Otherwise, the few available jobs cannot absorb every person looking for a job. You see long queues of young people near the departure terminals of many African airports. They are more motivated than ever and determined to export their workforce to external countries (because we did not respect them domestically).
Despite the risks involved, they gather and go home. Many of our people died under mysterious circumstances while trying to make ends meet on foreign soil.
It is not a crime to look for opportunities. You can't blame them. All we can do is try to find a balance point so that they can go and be comfortable.
Call on those governments that welcome our people, urge them to treat our people with respect. Make them feel valued. Then we will indirectly mitigate some of the dangers to which these people are exposed.
Returning to the internal front, we see that many homeworkers work in many homes to help them take on those various household duties that we “may not have time for.”
We continue to recruit these people without any proper commitment. No contract is offered to them, and therefore, we exploit them. So, we take advantage of the lack of regulations to operate domestic workers and meet our needs.
In the absence of regulations, we can use the best practices of managing this industry in an attempt to organize something to regulate domestic workers.
Note that domestic workers become part of our families. Homework easily qualifies as a work of love because it affects every aspect of the family (where love must begin).
Over time, he has a physical and emotional attachment to his families. So, waiting for the rules to organize a situation waits too long.
This can complicate the situation. Even if regulations were available, enforcing them is something to look out for. So far, we have a significant gap in the domestic working industry. Part of the solution is to invest more.
Follow some available best practices to ensure recognition of the domestic workforce and other healthcare industries. Encourage families to make the industry profitable.
Since people work for you, pay them well. Appreciate home workers and they will appreciate you in return – create a win-win situation. Then young people will not make dangerous adventures to take their workforce abroad, when in fact they can get everything that can be done from here, locally.
They will have no reason to travel abroad for such purposes. And when they return, they discover that their families have broken up. We can avoid trouble by recognizing and appreciating the work of domestic workers.
