Abstract:

Methodology -- The abuse and exploitation of child domestic workers : a continuing situation -- Eight enduring myths -- Continuing failure of the Indonesian government to protect and prevent exploitation of child domestic workers -- National and local governments' international legal obligations -- Recommendations.

This report documents how hundreds of thousands of girls in Indonesia, some as young as 11, are employed as domestic workers in other people's households, performing tasks such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, and child care. Most girls interviewed for the report worked 14 to 18 hours a day, seven days a week, with no day off. Almost all are grossly underpaid, and some get no salary at all. In the worst cases, girls reported being physically, psychologically, and sexually abused.
