Akbayan Party Hits Singapore Maid 'Slave Auction'

The Akbayan party-list group has denounced what it called a “modern-day slave auction” in Singapore in which maids, including Filipinos, are displayed and marketed at a shopping mall in the city state, reports Inquirer.net. The group called on the Singapore government to crack down on the “display and marketing of migrant workers” at the Bukit Timah Shopping Center.
