A Filipina domestic helper chants slogans during a demonstration against the proposed levy and reduction of minimum allowable wage in Hong Kong January 12, 2003. More than 1,000 foreign domestic helpers took part in the protest on Sunday. The 240,000-strong community of foreign domestic workers in Hong Kong are supposed to receive a minimum wage of HK$3,670 (US$471) a month, but are increasingly blamed for snatching badly-needed jobs from locals as the territory tries to restart its sickly economy.
