Imagine if the LA based agencies got together and told the actual tales of staffing in Hollywood! I'm not sure if it would be a scandal, or if we would all just continue to look the other way? Here's how they're getting called out in India…
The co-founder of an agency providing domestic help to Mumbai homes has vowed never to send any of his workers to Bollywood stars after many of the helpers complained of abuse and bad treatment.
Anupam Sinhal, CEO of Bookmybai — a company with 50,000 housemaids, cooks and babysitters registered with it — described on his blog how 25 film and television celebrities had mistreated the domestic helpers he sent to them.
Mr Sinhal said one of his domestic helpers had been tortured by a celebrity client.
“Her domestic help returned to the agency with visible bruises on her body, but refused to file a police complaint,” Mr Sinhal said. He asked the celebrity about her behaviour, but she threatened to “write bad things” about his agency on her Twitter account, which she said had 400,000 followers.
Later Mr Sinhal found out that no domestic help stayed beyond a week at her home.
