94.6% of 1,000 foreign domestic workers surveyed in Hong Kong showed strong signs of being exploited by employers, with one in six having been forced into labor, Hong Kong Free Press reported, citing a new study by Justice Centre Hong Kong, a non-governmental organization. The center’s survey of domestic workers from eight countries estimated that around 50,000 of Hong Kong’s 336,000 domestic workers were being forced into labor, and 14% of those doing forced labor having been trafficked into it. “Hong Kong must come clean and acknowledge these problems; it can no longer afford to simply sweep them under the carpet,” said Piya Muqit, the center’s executive director.
