Indonesia is failing to protect its domestic workers and leaves them vulnerable to abusive employers, Amnesty International has found. The country’s estimated 2.5 million domestic workers - some as young as 12 - are generally considered second class citizens, the rights watchdog said. The government has admitted the law is failing domestic workers and said talks are under way to amend it. But part of the problem is the failure to enforce existing laws, Amnesty said. (BBC)
