    Domestic Helpers – More Helpers from Cambodia / Cigarette Packages' Warning

    On Wednesday's Backchat, more domestic helpers. It's been announced that the first batch of helpers from Cambodia will arrive in Hong Kong in the autumn, the first from that country, in a move linked to the Belt and Road initiative. It's estimated that one in three households with children already have helpers - why are there so many in Hong Kong, and who are the winners and losers? Is it just a matter of tapping unskilled labour from countries too poor to complain? How do other places manage? After 9.20, warnings on cigarette packets get bigger. (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
