Meanwhile,  Cynthia Tellez, general manager of the Mission for Migrant Workers, said. “Hong Kong has at least HK$25,000 (P823,528) per capita income for 2019. Even if you include all that a migrant worker consumes and uses in an employer's household, it does not match what a person should get as an income. Foreign domestic workers are not less human, working people,”
